Kevin Leon Felderhoff

Specializing in 

American Handcrafted Heirloom Reclaimed Furniture & Wood Turned Art


Kevin Felderhoff was born and raised in Muenster, Texas and earned a BS of Industrial Technology with an emphasis in Construction Management from Texas State University in San Marcos Texas. He has lived in Birmingham, Alabama; Gainesville, Texas, and currently lives in Brevard, North Carolina turning and designing furniture for a hobby. Kevin’s love for building things and working with wood began in his high school years. He was fortunate to have an awesome shop teacher who taught him great wood working techniques. Furniture design began in high school where he built two roll top desks and has continued with reclaimed barnwood and reclaimed mesquite. While in Alabama, a colleague introduced him to woodturning and Kevin quickly became involved with the Alabama Woodturners and in fact was elected President in 2009. He began turning on a Rikon Mini Lathe in 2007 and currently is turning on a Powermatic 3520B. Living in the mountains of North Carolina, Kevin had the opportunity to participate in numerous exhibitions and demonstrations. Fallen wood was prevalent and provided opportunities to challenge and grow his analytical and artistic mind. It was satisfying to Kevin to rescue a gnarly piece of wood and transform it to an exquisite piece of unique art. Turning for Kevin is stimulating and mentally challenging to analyze the rescued wood and calculate the best angle to mount the wood on the lathe.
