Joe von Heideken

Joe’s journey into woodworking all started on a cold, rainy Northern California afternoon many years ago. Scouting an out of the way beach that was littered with cool shells, rocks and of course driftwood.

Fast forward several years – cutting into one of the pieces driftwood revealed a beautiful piece of redwood just waiting to get rediscovered.  Its especially rewarding to dig into a piece of discarded wood,  whether it’s a piece of Juniper from our own back yard or Maple or Oak or Redwood from West of the Cascades –each has a story to tell once it’s brought back to life.
