Main Gallery: Bob Cooper Woodworking
Woodworking was a natural career choice for Bob, whose love of art and woodworking proved to be a rewarding combination. As a result of this passion, Bob formed his own company at age 18. Over a span of 30+ years, Bob developed his business into one which continues to earn national and international recognition. His work has been published in Iowa Architect, Modern Salon, and Better Homes and Gardens. With his love of design, exotic woods, and his imaginative use of stains and colors, he has invented and developed innovative techniques in woodworking. His style could best be described as a combination of old-world craftsmanship and new-world design. His skill and versatility in woodworking allows him to produce millwork for commercial businesses, homes, salons, and restaurants as easily as he creates art pieces displayed in various galleries.
