Todd Ouwehand

Educated at California State University in Long Beach, earning both his Bachelor and Masters in art, he taught woodworking at Cerritos College for five years. A designer and master craftsman, he has celebrated over 20 years of crafting elegant, one of a kind furniture that uses “a symbiosis of graceful forms and solid functionalism”.


He states that part of his fascination for woodworking comes from the fantastic transformation of material that takes place; first, wood enters his shop as rough-hewn boards with dull color and little distinguishable grain or figure, and then when it leaves the shop it becomes a piece of furniture that has been shaped and polished as smooth as glass with deep, vibrant color and in many cases has striking figures and patterns.

He currently works with clients nationwide from his studio in Los Angeles, California.
