Denny Trandem

Denny and his wife Sharon run a small company in Northern Minnesota that specializes in fine woodworking, carved products, hand carved gourds, and diamond willow lamps.

Denny has worked with wood since he was a young man. He helped his father build houses and learned to love all things made of wood. Denny enjoys taking old pieces of furniture and restoring them to their natural beauty. His latest passion is making burl bowls.

Denny’s creations are one-of-a-kind since he carves them by hand. He states that the wood tells him what to do. He is creative with the use of inlay materials, adding small touches of color to his project. Lately, Denny has started using the Lichtenburg technique of electric wood burning on his walking sticks and burl bowls, creating interesting burn patterns.
