“Each piece of rare wood is unique and must be studied and turned to reveal and enhance the beauty locked within. Each piece is hand turned and no two pieces are identical.”

John R. Sherman Ph.D

Dr. John Sherman was trained as a neuropsychologist who worked extensively with head trauma patients. He was responsible for assessing the injury and potential of each client, and to rehabilitate them to their full potential. Dr. Sherman, having worked with wood for more than 30 years as an avocation, is now turning his attention to woodworking as a vocation. John is now focusing on highly figured and exotic woods as they are more challenging and beautiful. His designs cross a broad spectrum of styles, but the final design is determined by the wood’s unique characteristics. John’s attention to detail and his beautiful finishes make his wood true works of art. Each piece is signed by the artist.
