Brian Parmenter's Profile
I started working with wood around the age of 12 after watching a neighbor who hand carved wooden totem poles and animals. Throughout high school I majored in woodworking and began collecting tools.
As life takes over and changes, my life path also changed and I became a plumber to help out my father in the family plumbing and water conditioning business which he started in 1956. I took over the business in 1996 and run to it to present day.
I contracted lyme disease about 10 years ago and getting around has progressively gotten worse. Working with wood is and always has been my relaxation and it comes so naturally, which is why all my pieces are hand crafted with my own designs. Some may resemble water droplets which being a plumber has been ingrained in my mind. Each piece flows naturally as does my trade. I observe wood in the same fashion as the grains flow together like water...
