Thank you for visiting our shop! We are a small Minnesota based company specializing in home decor, design, and gifts. Every item begins with an idea that we then design and craft to create the products that are seen in our shop. Our speciality is in handcrafted wood signs made with techniques such as laser engraving, cnc router, and/or handpainting. We also dabble in small batch items such as engraved glassware, tumblers, sublimation, leather engraving, wood jewelry, coasters, cutting boards, industrial style furniture and so much more.

I work full-time as a CNC programmer but on the weekends enjoy working with metal, forging, or tinkering with my CNC router. I enjoy just about anything with an engine & spending time in my shop working on the latest project.

Our Story: The Anvil

The most common question we hear is how did we come up with the name The Tipsy Anvil Co.?

The name is based on a rather unique story from Kaitlyn's childhood. Her grandfather was an avid collector of just about everything and anything. One of these items happened to be a red anvil. Well, kids being kids, one day her siblings manage to knock that anvil off it's stand. Resulting in many tears, a broken ankle, one delicious rootbeer(a rare treat as a kid), her grandfathers comfort, and an unforgettable memory. Fast forward many years, with Derek having a background in Blacksmithing we inherited that very same anvil and it now resides in our shop inspiring our name. It is also a way to honor a grandfather who instilled the belief of hardwork, to never be afraid to get your hands dirty, & ignited the spark to create.
