My name is Jerry Braswell. I live in the Sierra Nevada mountains about 1 1/2 hours east of Sacramento, California in the U.S.A.
I have been a woodworker since 1983. I have built almost anything you could imagine in the fast paced cabinetmaking world.
I have always been interested in the ART of woodworking as opposed to the INDUSTRY I was working in.
After an encounter with a suiseki enthusiast, I was asked to make daizas for him and have made over 500 daizas since for friends and clients.
In 2007 I was asked to start making bonsai stands because of the need within the bonsai community for good quality custom sized stands.
On the site you can see a gallery of daizas I have made as well as a gallery of stands I have made. You can also order a stand or daiza via email.
I do vending at most of the bonsai shows in central California where you can buy my stands and suiseki as well as bring a stone to leave with me for a daiza or create a stand to be made.
