Heiko Weiner started his woodworking journey in Germany more than 30 years ago. His grandpa, an avid carpenter, often took him out to his own woodshop.

The woodworkers he learned from at the time were making a living building toys and carving figurines. In time, he realized that successful woodworking requires mastering many different techniques. Although he does not exclusively turn wood, it is noticeable that this is something he enjoys greatly. Over the years, Heiko has succeed in creating his own, distinctive style. In his current work, he mixes styles and materials, which include other natural products, like essential oils, semi-precious stones, bone and metal.
