About Us

Ellie, Myrtle Jo & Earnie Efforts

Our home on Lasting Laughter Asylum Farm is nestled in the beautiful Olalla Valley and shadowed by the Pacific Coast Range in SW Oregon.  We are a husband and wife woodworking team inspired by nature and our canine friend Myrtle Jo Efforts.

We sell our natural woodworking on Etsy and at Oregon's famous Eugene Saturday Market where we met and fell in love in 1998Together our treasures have been bringing new life to woods discarded by humans and nature since then.  The woods used in our artwork were collected from our coastal waters, streams, backyards, or sustainably harvested by folks we know.  No living trees are ever cut for our artwork & our intention is to maintain the integrity of the wood's natural beauty created by Mother Nature.
