Steve's Profile

About

Hi! My name is Steve.

I am a retired U.S. Air Force Band musician. When i retired from playing music i desperately needed a new outlet for some form of creativity. I am a firm believer that we are what we make.

Nothing in my shop is mass produced. Each item is a genuine one-of-a-kind piece. My passion for beautiful woods and woodturning is displayed in every piece that I make. I am very happy and fortunate to have customers all over the world, and am humbled every time one of them likes my work enough to spend their hard earned money for something i enjoyed making. My biggest hope is that people will like my work enough to pass it down in their families, and that long after I am gone , my work will still be out there living on.

Thank you for visiting my shop. I hope you come back often!
