Eric Kvalheim of Norseman Wood Design says: I have lived in Wisconsin all of my life. In my youth, I was introduced to woodworking by my father and later chose cabinet building as my profession. Working in a large cabinet shop offers me a world of opportunity when it comes to small pieces of wood. I think wood is the greatest building material Mother Nature produces. I take great pride in being able to make something useful from a small piece of wood. I work with red and white oak, maple, cherry, ash and black walnut which are all native to Wisconsin. Any item I build is made with this simple thought: build things to last a lifetime and beyond.
