Every artifact has a story, carry it on.
In the Summer of 2013, my son was taken from me in a very selfish act, more to the point: my life was shattered. Left bitter and broken, I retreated into alcohol. After 4 months of living in a whiskey-latent blur, I decided to pick myself up off the ground, as this was no way to live… I started remodeling an old shed on my property as well as pick up various tools on my travels. Instead of picking up a bottle, I would pick up a draw-knife or a rasp and shape a piece of Carolina Hickory.
Over time, I started to produced a collection of quasi-retrospective artifacts that, in their craftsmanship and character, reflected the tune of terrible beauty and heartbreak, or so the story goes —
Two years later I would gain my son back, regaining the love I once knew. Now together, we rebuild not only our family, but keep the Noble Woodsman brand as a reminder that even in tragedy, something amazing is born.
If you find us traveling, please say hello, we would love to hear your story as well…
