Self taught wood designer Bill Luke designs and builds
most of his own creations. Although he has been working
with wood for years, it was in the early 1990’s he turned
his basement into his wood shop. In no time at all, he
outgrew his small basement and worked in a portion
of his garage.
In 2004 he built a new Wood Shop in his backyard. It consists of his material holding area, work bench, staining room and beautiful showroom to house his finished projects. He uses all types of wood but prefers working with oak and pine. He is well known for measuring spaces that his masterpieces will fit and creating his own original design. Bill has never formally been trained in woodworking, but his free spirited approach to the craft sets him apart.
Many of my projects consist of different kinds of things such as shelves, gun cabinets with or without lights, entertainment centers, curio cabinets, armoires, coat racks with or without mirrors, toy chests, hope chests, garbage can storage, shadow boxes, coffee tables, children’s tables and chairs, rockers, quilt chest, keepsake tables, bedroom sets with dressers, chest of drawers, night stands and the latest venture of caskets for adults & children, and urns. Helping with the finishing touches is my wife Sandy, whom does all the sewing of the casket linings.
