Artist Profile Steve Noggle

Steve has been working with trees and wood since finishing a degree in Forestry in 1976 from LSU in Baton Rouge. After a few years as a timber cruiser in the Pacific Northwest, Steve returned home to North Carolina and began his career as an engineer in the furniture industry. He has been building fine furniture for himself and friends and family since college – first out of necessity and later purely for pleasure.

With his discovery of woodturning, however, the hobby of woodworking has turned into a passion. "Turning" quickly captivated more and more of his creative energy and interest, and soon he left the manufacturing business to work fulltime as a craftsman. Steve's workshop is a depression-era clapboard building, a "store" his family built to sell their farm produce during the 1930's. His wood comes from many sources, including the acres of hardwood forest left from the original family farm in Burke Country, NC. This mature forest has oaks, cherries, sycamores, poplars, hickories, and maples.
