As a child, Tina Hoffer discovered a passion for woodworking by watching her dad in his own shop. After moving to Colorado in 1990, she started a family and turned her garage into a wood shop where she could escape and could explore the beauty of woodworking.
Using a variety of woods, domestic, exotic, and reclaimed, in her Lafayette workshop, Tina creates a wide range of functional works of art. She has refined her craft and focuses now on smaller creations. Natural-edge cutting boards and hand-carved kitchen utensils are among her specialties. They are functional, beautifully designed and crafted and a joy to use, to hold, and to behold.
