Carving out a niche

What began as a diversion from retired life shaped up to be a finely tuned trade for Tim Cebulla.

The 62-year-old Medford resident has been showcasing his one-of-a-kind wooden creations at the Grower's Market for the past three years under the vendor name Wood I Kid You?

Cebulla sells a variety of items at the market, including pens, cribbage boards, compact mirrors, clocks, wine goblets and ice cream scoops.

He fashions many of them by hand, and uses a wood lathe for others. He prefers to use native and recycled types of wood.

"When I'm turning wood everything else just goes away," he said.
