EL Gallo Woodworking



Welcome to my web site. El Gallo  has been my constant companion and critic for the past 20 years as I have learned the craft of woodworking.

My one-of-a-kind bowls, tables, and benches are inspired by the unique styles that have emerged from the  American Southwest’s Native American, Spanish, and Mexican traditions. Utilizing distinctive hardwoods,  colorful Talavera, Sevillian, Moorish, and Italian tiles, and turquoise inlays I strive to create works that are  original yet respectful of  the original art forms.

I hope you enjoy browsing  through the different galleries which offer a sampling of the work that I have done.
