"We were founded in 2001 when I began collecting scraps of wood left over from various contracting projects and using them to create creative presentation platters. That was the first step towards A Cut Above. Soon I began laboring over more and more cutting boards, each one increasing in creativity and complexity.  Most of my boards now incorporate “repurposed / recycled” hardwoods as well as numerous exotic species. From there, my passion for woodworking spread to the rest of the family."



"I never thought that I would be spending so much time in a woodshop!  I began to learn about using tools and woodworking techniques and love my time designing and creating boards with Steve. I am constantly amazed by the way different woods look together and how we can create functional art from blocks of wood."



"Hi! I currently am studying and expanding my horizons at UC Riverside, where I am obtaining a PhD in Plant Biology. When I'm home, I also occasionally dabble in woodworking and have been known to make wooden bottle stops and vases. I also greatly enjoy helping to oil the boards and getting to see the colors of the wood pop."



"I am a passionate maker, and have always enjoyed the creativity, utility, and beauty that wood provides. My fascination with this craft began in 2011 when I took an interest in turning wooden pens. Soon, I became more drawn to my father's wood shop as I learned of the endless possibilities that the space offered. I spent a good portion of my free time watching videos of other woodworkers, gaining new knowledge and building a reservoir of project ideas.

I now work as the Manager of the Georgetown University Maker Hub where I assist students, faculty, and staff with a variety of making projects. I've now expanded my making craft to 3D printing, laser cutting, sewing, embroidery, bookbinding, printmaking, and small electronics and I continue to help my parents with product photography and website management. Woodworking will always be my first making passion."
