Richard Altenhofen Richard Altenhofen - Sonoran Desert Woodturner

Featured work from My Etsy Store


I am a woodturning artisan who lives in the Sonoran Desert. I create functional and decorative Sonoran Desert wood art

for your desk

for your kitchen

for your eyes.

I use primarily woods I collect in the Sonoran Desert

I collect most of my own wood that is blown down after a winter storm or dead trees. This is all wood that would otherwise have ended up in a landfill. By recycling these woods I am giving these trees new life as works of art.
