Skills and Techniques

Besides perfecting my woodworking and stained glass skills, I dabble in many forms of creativity, the newest being silversmith. I'm also one heck of a Walleye fisherman!

Get to Know

I have been doing some form of woodworking for over 50 years. I started young, scrounging wood to build push carts and "forts". I designed and did all the finish work on my first house. I have restored the original woodwork in my 1920's era bungalow. I have made all my own furniture, dining room sets, beds, lighting, kitchen cabinets, tables and built ins. I also do stained glass and inlay work and now I am working on becoming a silversmith. As I have progressed through my travels in life, and in woodworking, I have always striven to make only the best quality items possible. Over the years I have added many different crafts to my "toolbox". My current offerings are the culmination of over a half century of collecting the skills necessary to bring you beautiful wood based items that incorporate much more than just wood. My hope is that you will love my offerings as much as I do and that they can become treasured family heirlooms. Thank you, Tim Pursell
