Gordon started woodworking at an early age, receiving instruction from his father. For many years he was fascinated by mechanical things and how to build them in the family workshop.

He continued his interest in college where he studied engineering, mechanics and design.

Throughout his life, he has enjoyed making original, one of a kind pieces of furniture and sculpture in wood.

He believes pieces executed in wood have properties unmatched by any other material, making for deep, beautiful, nuanced surfaces. “Every tree is unique as is the wood that comes from it. No two items I’ve made have ever been exactly alike and each has their own character.”

Born in the Midwest, he now lives and works in Fremont, California within hearing of the bells of historic Mission San Jose, founded 1797, at the base of Mission Peak.
