Artist: Les Stern

I’m a 3rd generation Denver native who fell in love with woodworking in middle school. I’ve always liked seeing what magic lies beneath the bark. Wood holds an inherent beauty within itself and is such a tactile material, and I love that… Mother Nature never disappoints! Now retired after teaching Shop & Engineering for 28 yrs, (and collecting wood even longer), I have more time to work on my passions, and if doing something that I love can in some way help another family when they may need it the most, I feel like that somehow gives a bit of honor to the tree as well.
