Episode 120: Jake Lewis and WoodWorx Turns Recycled Wood Into Art Here in Northwest Arkansas

About the Show:                          

We recently sat down with Jake Lewis, the founder of WoodWorx Workshop. Jake is a  talented artist and woodworker.  He learned to marry his passion for woodworking and art with business. He takes recycled wood and repurposes them into works of art for all to enjoy – see some of the examples in the show notes below.

I spent some time in Jake’s tidy little workshop just off the Greenway on the Fayetteville and Johnson line, where I got a chance to watch work on one of his new creations, and then we sat down to talk shop – no pun intended.

Jake shared an example of how he learned to handle wood and the tools necessary to make his works of art.  He is pretty much self-taught, and from the looks of the art that he is creating, he had a great teacher.  Jake attends many Craft Fairs around the State and is a regular fixture at the Bentonville Market, Ozark Natural Foods, and the Velvet Otter
