About Jeffrey Simon


About me
I have been in the trades since leaving college, starting out in stained and leaded glass and then moving to woodworking in my mid twenties. Since then, I have worked to master my craft, developing the skills to turn wood into someone’s creative and innovative reality. The pursuit of quality, attention to detail, integrity, and very important, customer satisfaction, have always been my desired goal. I have lived in the Yampa Valley for 44 years and have enjoyed the journey, being involved in the building trades and creative arts of our community. When I am not in the workshop, I enjoy my family, friends, sailing and baking bread. 

About my work

My work in the Yampa Valley can be found inside local restaurants, businesses, and individual homes. The process and challenges involved in creating and building projects, be it involved with the lathe, carving, or being able to steam bend wood, fuels my passion for woodworking. I equally love to build a set of stairs, doors, or collaborate on a piece of furniture that will be a distinctive piece in your home. Please browse my galleries to see photos of my previous work. No two pieces are alike, but each one exhibits the quality and craftsmanship that I can bring to you. Thank You
