About me

Occupation Worker in Wood
Location Twin Cities, Minnesota, United States
Introduction My woodworking story began many years ago. I had an uncle who was a self-taught shipwright who designed and constructed many handmade wooden sailing and fishing vessels. I always loved going to visit him and hang around his shop as a kid. No one in our family wanted to learn wood working except for me and I spent several years off and on learning woodworking and finishing with him. Through the years I have built a lot of furniture for myself and my family and I always enjoyed it. The years went by and between having a family and working, I had little time for woodworking so I eventually gave it up. When the recession hit I found myself unemployed and searching for something to keep myself busy. I remembered how much I enjoyed working with my hands and a small part-time job enabled me to get some funds together to purchase some wood and some tools. The result is Selkie Wood Works. I am passionate about folk and traditional craft and I enjoy carving spoons.
Interests Woodworking, design, industrial items that have been applied in unusual ways to furniture and interior design, architecture, folk art, traditional carving, green wood working, spoon carving
