About Tim & Nancy Startup

 

We are collaborative artists, husband and wife, and friends.

Our inspiration for the pieces we make can come from an experience, travels, stories, or legends, but is always influenced by the wood we buy and collect.

We are fierce advocates of ideas, lovers of nature, art, music, architecture, color, diners, drive-ins and dives, logical conversation, and humor.

Drawing out the beauty, character, maybe even the purpose of the wood we work with, is foremost. Rough unworked wood joined with fluid ideas and fine craftsmanship is our starting point.

Along the way corrections, rethinking, and advocating all occur as together we shape and build a piece.
