Jeff Goble - Woodworker
Jeff Goble spent most of his 34 year Army career in Special Forces – The Green Berets – serving in operations around the world and positions at the highest levels of our military. He retired in 2015, a 100% disabled veteran in search of a second calling. He found it in woodworking, an often solitary and fulfilling craft with tangible results, and an almost therapeutic effect on the maker; the opposite of the high intensity world of Special Operations.
Jeff didn’t leave his military past behind. On the contrary, he draws his inspiration from things in his military life, and names each piece for that particular memory. His most popular collection of exotic hardwood boards are called “Selection Boards,” inspired by the board of officers who ultimately select soldiers to wear the Green Beret.
Jeff is formally trained and certified in Woodwork by the Florida School of Woodwork, where he was trained by world renowned artisans and craftsmen such as Kate Swann, Michael Fortune, Kelly Parker, Michael Cullen, and Philip Morley. He has a simple approach to designing and making pieces, allowing the wood to speak for itself. He believes the maker’s role in the process is to help the wood continue to live, in beauty, pleasing people for years to come.
Let him make a beautifufor heirloom for you.
