Welcome to SilverPearl Woodworking. I’ve been on this journey for a number of years now, but then again, it’s a lifetime in the making. I’ve always been interested in antique furniture and I’ve come to realize that it wasn’t so much about ‘old stuff’ as about solid, varied, well built, beautiful works in wood.
So I’ve been making things, but more importantly – I’ve been studying, learning, researching and setting my own path. You can check out what I’ve done by clicking on the pages listed in the header above.
Up until the last few years my focus and passion was on cooking, or really, cooking and eating. I’ve always loved how creative cooking is and the focus on technique and ingredients. The parallel with woodworking is direct for me – research, design, plan, implement. With woodworking I now have another endless world of tools, skills and materials to explore.
I was inspired by my bride Bobie a few years ago when she took her lifelong interest in photography and got serious with that passion – check out: bgburwellphotography.com
“SilverPearl” is an homage to my mother – Pearl Nobles Burwell. She was silverhaired from an early age – I’m sure we four kids did that to her. She was an inspiration and a joy to be around. I miss her.
