Stephen Paulsen learned woodworking as a young boy and had his first gallery show of sculpture and woodcut prints at the age of fifteen. During the 1970s, he worked in logging, millwork, and lumbering and also gained experience as a cabinetmaker. He uses exotic and rare woods for his objects, and his wide range of work includes jewelry boxes, furnishings, wall constructions, and even small parts for classic cars.
