Portrait of Joel Nichols

Hello and thank you for visiting my website.

My career as a craft artist began at an early age. My dad had a modest wood shop when I grew up and my friends and I had free access to it. A ten old in a wood shop is a dangerous thing. Not because of what they might cut off but for what they might actually build. We made all kinds of crazy things. Mostly weaponry for taking on the Bigfoot that lived in the woods by our house.

My dad was a carpenter, so I guess you could say I grew up learning the trade. Never really enjoyed it all that much though so I got a college education so I wouldn’t have to do that kind of work anymore. My last semester I needed an art credit in order to graduate. I ended up in a jewelry class. It was the first art class I’d really ever taken and I loved it. I can honestly say if it weren’t for that class I wouldn’t be doing what I am today.

What do I do today? I build custom furniture and home accessories. Take a look at my portfolio and let me know if you’d like me to build you something special.
