About O'Connor Woodworking

Thanks for visiting O'Connor Woodworking!

My name is Jeff O’Connor and I am a retired U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Master Chief and a former Chicago Law Enforcement Officer.

I have been woodworking for over 25 years, and in 2019 I was accepted into the Purple Heart Project. The PHP is a hand tool woodworking course for Combat Wounded Veterans taught by world renowned woodworker, Rob Cosman. This weeklong course changed my life forever and inspired me to launch O'Connor Woodworking!

I currently reside in Virginia Beach, Virginia with my custom sewist wife, Kim, the owner of Snippets and Stitches. Together we create custom work in wood and fabric for clients around the world.

A portion of proceeds from every project are donated to various veteran organizations such as the Navy Special Operations Foundation and the Purple Heart Project.

Old World Craftsmanship

Beautifully crafted shave brush! Expertly executed, perfect size and shape so it's comfortable to use. Substantial weight which makes it feel like the high quality item it is. I love the fact that it's a chunk of wood from a tree that grew in Ireland 5,000 odd years ago. The knot is really great quality and holds a ton of water/lathers very well. For comparison, I have a Simpson's Berkeley shave brush and this brush performs better.

Ordered this item and I am thrilled with how well made it is and how gorgeous the wood is. I will definitely shop for other items from this talented craftsman.

Beautiful piece of wood, carefully crafted. O'Connor Woodworking was quick to respond to the order, asked if I had any questions, and was quick to deliver will definitely look to them again for future needs.
