Jerry Bailey

Jerry Bailey worked as a high-end, custom cabinet/furniture maker and has been a custom woodworker for over 30 years. 

Jerry's business, One Time Designs, was created and has been in business since 2008. Jerry now enjoys turning out larger sized, completely utilitarian pieces on a wood lathe, primarily using exotic woods that you won't find in everyday stores.

He loves making custom turned bowls, vases, platters, trays, bottle stoppers, earrings, pendants, heirloom quality jewelry boxes, humidors, lazy susans and general knick-knacks out of wood. All pieces he makes are designed to be completely Food Safe and he suggests you use them at parties and family gatherings, instead of just displaying them on a shelf or your buffet. Jerry generally doesn’t like to stain or dye any wood but would rather let nature's beauty speak for itself.  He does use a dye if it will highlight the different grains/patterning of the woods.


Jerry’s favorite woods to work with are:

Burls and Spalted woods, Curly Maple, Figured Maple, Spalted Maple, Walnut, English Walnut, Claro Walnut, Black Walnut, Flame Box Elder, Rainbow Poplar, Maple Burl, Box Elder Burl, Buckeye Burl, Pollyanna Burl, Yellow box Burl, Red Mallee Burl, Coolibah Burl, Redwood Burl, Pommele Sapeles Burl, Olive Ash Burl, Iroko, Sycamore, Ambrosia Sycamore, Ambrosia Maple, Chechen, Black Mesquite, Mesquite, Zapote, Burmese Blackwood, Leopardwood, Rosewood, Yucatan Rosewood, Cherry, Chinaberry, Hackberry, Spalted Hackberry, Holly, Red Gum, Red Elm, Cottonwood, Spalted Cottonwood, Bloodwood, and Padauk.
