Location: Sparks, Nevada

My name is Glenn Holsworth and I'm a retired roofer of over 35 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. I've been working with wood since the age of 17 building anything from cabinets, tables, jewelry boxes and wood turnings. For the past 30 years, I have been hunting down the best California Black Walnut (Claro Walnut) in the Northern California region as well as other exotic species of wood. All of the walnut slabs and turning blanks that I have were cut and milled by myself, friends and family on an Alaskan Mill with a 66" bar in order to cut up to 52" wide slabs.

Moreover, you can check out our gallery filled with pictures of past clients finished projects as well as completed projects and furniture that I have made myself. This gallery is just a small preview of how fabulous this beautiful wood looks in all varieties of projects.
