Saternus Woodworking


Recommended Posts

Very first thing: Mods, if this crosses the line of "only sponsors can do this," please let me know or just delete this. I discussed this with MyGolfSpy earlier, and I think this is ok, but absolutely no hard feelings if I'm wrong and this needs to be removed.

 

Hello everyone else! My name is Matt Saternus and I've started this thread to introduce my business, Saternus Woodworking, and to show off some of my work. I build custom putter & HC racks (and occasionally other things, I'm flexible). For me, "custom" includes choice of: species of wood, finish/stain, shaping of the sides/header, engraved plates, size, and configuration. If you're interested in a custom piece, please shoot me a PM.

 

Also, I recently worked out an agreement with Byron Morgan to be the EXCLUSIVE distributor of Byron Morgan putter & HC racks. I can offer racks with engraved plates depicting any Byron Morgan logos and graphics, like you will see in some of the pictures (all the racks depicted here are currently in Byron's Huntington Beach shop).

 

With each picture, I'll tell you a bit about the rack so that you can get an idea about different customization options.

 

This first picture is the rack that I built for my own office. It's cherry wood with General Finishing water-based cherry stain, and it holds 6 putters and 16 HCs.

These three were also built for Byron Morgan. They are all 10 putter floor racks. They are all finished with natural oil and shellac. From left to right, they are made out of: oak, maple, and cypress. The rack on the right has sides that are shaped like longboards, which you can't see too well in the picture.

This is my latest project, a 10 putter rack in oak with an American Oak finish. 2 unique features: the customer requested a solid backboard with a sheet of plexiglass on top (not pictured) that he's going to use as a picture frame and he also requested that the header on the rack be made to look like his roll top desk.

These are great Matt. If the new twisty can't find the cup, I may need your services for hangin it on the wall.

Anyone ordering a rack for 20 betti's is my hero.

I'd have to muster all of my skills to build a rack worthy of that beauty!

 

With you 100% on the Betti rack, but I'm not sure that the rack even holds all of Randy's Bettis! His collection is absolutely ridiculous.

I was wondering when this thread was going to surface. Great work Matt. I can tell you, if I'm lucky enough to win a couple of putters in the contest, then I'm going to need a rack. But, one step at a time. Still a long month ahead... :lol:

These last two are both 20 putter floor racks made out of cherry with my secret double cherry finish. As you might guess, the second one was built with a great deal of input from a great Bettinardi collector.

 

My Bettinardi knowledge must be REALLY lacking - what's the design element in the second rack that is reminiscent of Bob's work? I was looking for the honeycomb but I don't think that's it.

The hexagon is a Bettinardi staple, and you can see the half-hexes on the header. I also used half-hexes on the sides of the rack, which you can't really see in the pics. It was a bit of a fine line, because I wanted to build what the customer wanted, but I'm not licensed to use Bettinardi imagery, so that was a bit of a compromise.

Honeycomb is dead right. But just a single cell of the comb makes a hexagon. Plus he puts the B inside on the headcovers, and belt buckles, and towels, and...

 

His association with the cool aide man is the one I question.

No, that makes perfect sense. Sorry, it was like I was looking at one of those ink blot images and I couldn't see what the shrink thought I should see. Maybe its just getting a little late in the day...

Very nice work!

 

 

I love the oak one, very nice wood grain!

 

 

Nice work....like I said in another thread, Nice rack! :rolleyes:

 

Thanks guys. Yeah, the oak backboard in post #6 photographed super well. Some people don't like oak because it's "too common" or something, but I think it's great, especially if you like a bolder grain pattern.
