Knotty Woods Alaska

Celebrating the Lives of Alaska’s Beautiful Trees

Turning Trees into

Beautiful Functional Art

From my shop in Two Rivers, Alaska, I pursue my passion of turning wood into beautiful pieces of functional art. One of my great passions is working with wood. I love the touch and feel of it and what it could become. I began woodworking at age ten, making yard signs, puzzles (of Elvis Presley) and progressing to cedar chests. After a long career in business and education, doing and teaching sales, marketing and management, I turned my hobby into a business. It is truly a privilege to turn a piece of wood into an object of function and beauty for your home. If you don’t see something you like, contact me as I may be able to offer you a custom piece.

From a Fallen Birch Tree

To a Functional Work of Art


Custom made for you 

We also offer custom bowls or platters from your own wood. If you have a tree that blew down or is dying or dead and want a memento of it for your family, please contact us. If you send us a photo and description of what you would like, we will contact you within 24 hours to discuss it with you.

This bowl was made from a dying Alaska Spruce tree. It has to be taken down so the bowl represents not only the tree but the vibrant colorss reflect the active family's lifestyle. They love it, too.
