Meet Norm Cowling

Meet Norm,  the creator behind the wooden creations.

Norm has always loved building different things from various pieces of wood.  When he was about 5 years old, his mother would give him the wooden boxes that fruit would come in.  He’d take these wood crates and construct something new from them.

At age 18 he started working in construction where he learned a lot about carpentry and honed his skills working with wood.

Norm is now retired from traditional work, living in Hibbing, Minnesota the northern area of the state where you can find him golfing if not in his workshop.
