"My name is Braxton Wirthlin and I was born and raised in the Las Vegas valley. I am a stay at home dad by day and a woodturner and furniture builder by night. I’m passionate about my craft and enjoy building custom pieces of furniture for business and individuals. In addition to building furniture, I’m also an avid woodturner. I enjoy turning bowls, lidded boxes, pens, and many other items. I try to use locally sourced, and salvaged wood as often as possible for much of my turning. There are many beautiful species of wood in the Las Vegas valley that are often cut down and sent to landfills. Being able to save these different types of wood and let them live on through my turnings is a personal goal of mine."
