Introducing The Glenshee Workshop... Unique creations from wood & metal, the Glenshee Workshop crafts recycled Bourbon Barrel home goods along with forged / welded metal arts and artistic weaponry.
In the spirit of my Scottish Heritage of Clan MacThomas (origin of my Thompson family lineage) from the Glenshee area in the Highlands of Scotland, and learning from generations of master craftsmen in the Thompson & Whitehouse families, I create wood and metal home goods as well as unique arts, crafts and artistic weaponry for others to enjoy. I love creating items from wood and upcycled bourbon barrels with a "twist" of incorporating forged metals.
I've wanted to learn the craft of Blacksmithing ever since I was young, becoming fascinated after visiting a working Blacksmith on an elementary school trip to the Farmington Plantation in Louisville, KY. I now use my skills in learning this new trade along with my experience in carpentry to create custom works to share with others.
