Joe Kovecses has been working with exotic woods for nearly three decades, creating a distinctly unique assortment of items incorporating the idea of form following function.
Born and raised in the beautiful Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, Joe has a deep appreciation and love of nature. After studying architectural drafting he worked as a builder. During that time he discovered a passion for working with exotic woods and applied his knowledge of architectural design to create a refreshingly new approach to woodworking, attempting to capture natural shapes and colors and compliment them with his own ideas.
Soon his wife Karen joined him in the woodshop and, with her background in stained glass creations and sales of fine contemporary crafts, added an important ingredient to their evolving craftsmanship.
