The stars at this years Academy Awards will take home a little piece of Kelowna.  Local woodworker Jeff Greenup has got his handcrafted wooden art included in some VIP gift bags.  “It feels a little surreal, to be honest,” says Greenup, “I’m very excited that the products will be there and I’m very excited to see what we may get from this opportunity,” he says.  The Caldbeck, England native explains there are 3 pieces included in the set he was commissioned to produce, all with a film theme.  “There’s a bookmark, a key tag and a ruler,” Greenup says, “all made of recycled wood.  Its high-end maple, which are offcuts from the material used for top-quality guitars,” he says.

You can check out Jeff’s work at his website.
