As the single owner operator of The Creature Vat, I make all my creations entirely by myself in my home "laboratory" and garage workshop.
It's fun to translate my long time interest in real and fantasy creatures into tangible items that hopefully other people will also find interesting and amusing.
Think of them as "coyote/roadrunner" names if you remember that cartoon. They are mostly made up using latin and greek word roots badly mangled to resemble biological genus/species taxonomy. Sometimes part of the name is to help me remember what kind of wood I used.
The Creature Vat does not use woods from trees protected by CITES, or appearing on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™:
