My name is Brandon and I believe that life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them. That means life is about being an engaging human. Being kind to your neighbor and being useful to your community. I started Handsome Woodworking with these beliefs held close to the heart. I set out to create things that people would use, not display, because everything I create are things I use myself.
The products I make are for people who believe in simplicity. For those who want something natural and compelling. Wood is beautiful because no two trees are the same. The natural peculiarities and imperfections in the grain make each board distinct and give each product it's own character. Wood isn't perfect and neither are people. I think that's why I love working with it. I'm never pursuing perfection, only the best representation of that piece I can create.
My deepest thanks for taking an interest in what I do. Let's go out and start making beautiful things.
