Burl Bio

I grew up in the Half Moon Bay area of California and began working with wood, as a carpenter in 1970. At about the same time I began collecting highly figured wood from my travels.

I believe that Nature has provided us with this treasured wood for our enjoyment, yet I always strive for sustainability. I choose salvaged Redwood (left behind by loggers as long as 100 years ago) from the ancient Redwood groves of the Northern California coast.

My friends and customers have been very pleased with the intense figuring and natural edge of the burl and slabs I sell and collect. I have become highly experienced, and personally choose and inspect every piece of wood to insure high levels of quality, before preparing these treasured gifts for your personal enjoyment.

With Nature’s assistance, I create Wild Wall Hangings, Heartfelt Altars with Gemstone inlays, Slabs and Tables, and Decorator Driftwood.
