Scott Beattie

Scott’s passion for the industrial arts started in grade school shop class where he completed his first woodworking projects and drafting exercises. Fueled by the DIY ethic of skateboard, BMX and punk rock culture, he began building ramps for himself and his friends. He then focused his skills at William Paterson University, earning a degree in studio art. After working as an art handler in New York City, he started building high-end cabinets in New Jersey. In 2001, Scott followed his wife to Lincoln, Neb., where he met his mentor, Roger Holmes, who trained him in the furniture making techniques that would come to define his work. In the workshop, Scott encourages the use of modern-day technology alongside traditional methods to make furniture, casework and architectural feature pieces of high quality and distinction. His unfailingly positive attitude, impressive work ethic and unquestionable skill make him a valuable force in our fabrication studio.
