About T.F. Woodworking
T.F. Woodworking began as a hobby for Tim and after receiving orders and encouragement from family and friends for his unique hand-turned items Tim and Stephanie decide to take this hobby to the next step. We started small, just doing orders here and there and then after receiving an invitation to join a local craft show in the fall of 2011 things began to move forward. We are excited with the growth we have had so far and are looking forward to what is still to come!
Tim turning a walnut bowl on the lathe
Tim began learning woodworking from his Grandfather at the age of 4. His first project was a wooden trivet (potholder). As the years passed Tim continued to work with his father and grandfather to develop his skills. Tim created multiple projects by the time he graduated high school, including a 6ft curio cabinet (that is still in our home today!), a communion chalice & platten set for his father's ordination from seminary, and a barrister bookcase (also still in our home!). After high school, Tim entered the Navy but found it a little difficult to bring his workshop on the ship so he took every chance he could on leave to borrow his dad's shop to build a custom bed frame and computer desk with filing cabinets. Tim's passion for woodworking continued to grow after leaving the Navy and finally having the opportunity to start building his own workshop. In addition to his woodworking projects, he is now turning wood and acrylic pieces on the lathe. These items include pens, bowls, vases, bottle stoppers, candle holders, key chains, light pulls and more. Tim enjoys looking at a piece of wood or acrylic and imaging the possibilities it holds. All of his works are his own original design but he does enjoy creating custom orders for clients as well.
Steph working on turning a stylus
Stephanie, Tim's wife, helps with every aspect of T.F. Woodworking. After watching Tim work on the lathe for several years she decided to try it for herself. After trying to turn some items with some help from Tim she took a beginning turning class and now is hooked. Both, Tim and Steph, now work on prep and finishing work, photographing and inventorying finished items, monitoring website and Facebook activity. Steph is the one that schedules the shows and now with her turning also she truly has a hand in everything! She loves being able to work along side Tim and helping to find new ways to grow the business.
