Patrick Sikes' Profile

About

Welcome to The Norsk Woodshop. My name is Patrick Sikes and I am a wood turner and penmaker. I work out of my studio in St Petersburg FL creating handcrafted pens from exotic wood and colorful acrylics.

I grew up around woodworking with my father and grandfather perpetually building some piece of furniture. I even remember stories of my grandfather building desks too large to move out of his basement shop and boiling wood to build his own water skis on the kitchen stove.

I have been a chip carver since 2003 and even have completed all three levels of chip carving for the Sons of Norway cultural skills program. I started wood turning in 2008 and just love the fast action and mostly instant gratification of it.
