Original art crafted with passion.

David Solomon

Artist Bio

Sault Ste Marie
I am self taught in all aspects of woodworking including wood technology, design, and construction. For over 30 years, I have been designing and crafting wooden items, starting from utilitarian pieces to my current passion of creating decorative, and sometimes functional, boxes.
My fascination with wood began at a young age and has progressed through several stages of woodworking. Starting with the construction of functional furniture, I progressed into making smaller, utilitarian, pieces such as bookends and kitchen utensils. More recently, my woodworking focuses on the creation of decorative wooden boxes. As well as appreciating the beauty of exotic woods, I am fascinated by how nature creates beautiful patterns in certain pieces of maple including spalted maple & crotch maple. These woods often provide the raw material for focal points in many of my creations. Cutting open such pieces is like a surprise package; never knowing what one will find, but often being rewarded with Nature’s beauty.
