Introducing Nick, a Bend resident on a sustainability crusade. Raised in a world of woodworking in his fathers cabinet shop, he's now wielding a portable sawmill for a greener cause. With an unwavering passion to keep trees from being landfill-bound or turned into mere firewood, Nick transforms discarded logs into functional and beautiful creations. By rescuing these forgotten timbers, he champions sustainability while crafting pieces that tell tales of nature's resilience. When he's not giving new life to wood, you'll spot him mountain biking or climbing, reminding us that preserving our planet is an adventure worth pursuing. Nick's sustainable spirit is carving a brighter future, one recycled log at a time.
