Scott Beattie

Scott began his career in wood fabrication in 5th grade, when he made a lamp on a wood lathe. He completed his first projects in high school, skateboard ramps for himself and his friends, then he focused his skills at William Paterson University, with a degree in studio art and a concentration in wood. After 15 years building high-end cabinets in New Jersey, Scott followed his wife to Nebraska. That’s where he met his mentor, Robert Holmes, and learned the techniques that would come to define his work.

Scott combines modern-day shop technology with old-school hand tools and traditional methods of joinery and veneering. His unfailingly positive attitude, impressive work ethic, and unquestionable skill make him a valuable addition to our wood studio.
