About the artist:
I've spent most of life outdoors. As a boyscout, a fisherman, an arborist, a runner, a camper - my whole life has fostered an appreciation for our natural world. I was pretty young when I got my first blade, which was eventually upgraded to a hatchet, and eventually my first axe. Going into forestry for a career seemed only right. And as an arborist, a sharp edge is your friend. Enter my wife - with a penchant for antique shops and estate sales. That combination has morphed into Northwoods Axe & Leather - she finds a vintage forestry tool with an edge that begs to be sharpened and restored, and I make it happen. Working with leather began as a way to protect each piece, and now I offer a variety of useful items.
