Virgil Leih is an artisan woodturner from Minneapolis, MN. He refined and developed his craft over the years of turning tree trunks (often rescued from landfills and urban forests) into large-scale sculptures.
He feels privileged to be the first to see the rare beauty of each tree trunk he turns - once hidden inside the tree, waiting to be revealed and enjoyed.
He is truly passionate about woodworking and creating a variety of memorable and accessible artistic pieces for his clients.
