Kent Shepherd's Profile

About

I have been in the woodworking business for about 45 years. I started in the shutter and cabinet door business, and have also done cabinets and trim for houses I have built. I love being creative with wood and have built quite a bit of custom furniture. One of my favorite things has been creating and building various boxes. Each one is unique. I prefer using natural woods with a clear finish to bring out the beauty. Using crushed turquois, bronze and brass adds to the character of some of my work. While the style and construction may often be the same, each "kreation" has its on DNA, with a look you will never find from a production company.
