Lee has been interested in trees and wood since his childhood in southwest Michigan. He started out making household items. A few years ago, he began to explore making cooking utensils that could both be practical and showcase the beautiful details in the wood that were revealed when splitting wood for fuel.
Lee uses both hand and power tools to bring out the variations in wood species and grains as he shapes the unique pieces that you will find in the gallery. Lee teaches English full time and also enjoys playing guitar, singing and traveling with his family.
