Eugene Watson creates original designs for his unique and award winning sculptural boxes. He makes each one himself from the finest exotic and domestic hardwoods available at his studio in Colorado. His pieces are intended to be just as functional as they are beautiful.
Watson began Watson Woodworks in 1990 in an old loft just outside of Chinatown in Chicago, Illinois. Prior to wood working, Eugene designed the electronics components for the black boxes in airplanes. Eugene holds a Bachelor of Science in Electronics Technology from Southern Illinois University. Eugene’s interest in woodworking evolved from his childhood and was influenced by his father and grandfather. He chose to pursue woodworking over an electronics career because he is able to express his creativity with his hands and designs innovative pieces in a relatively short period of time. They reflect his background engineering and artistic style.
