John Symank was a great wood carver and crafted many different things from birds to furniture. Many of his creations were gifts to friends and family, but he did frequent many craft shows with his wife Sarah where his creations were sold. When he coached for the Baltimore Colts he started a line called Pennsylvania Primitives, and in his retirement years he made carvings of Egrets and Pelicans inspired by living on the Gulf Coast.

Pictured here is the famous John Symank hot sauce rack. Many a family member have this exact same rack hanging in their kitchen. Also pictured is the "trophy shelf" which has since been converted into a cookbook shelf.
