Scott Spiess has over 40 years’ experience in hand-crafted woodwork. Raised in Oregon amid lush forests, he developed an appreciation for the natural beauty of real wood. He gained initial skills from his carpenter grandfather and his dad as together they built a family home in 1972. At age 17, he used summer job earnings to purchase his own woodworking machinery.
During his years at Claremont McKenna College, his heart for other cultures was ignited as he ventured abroad to study in Mexico and India, graduating with a Bachelors’ degree in international relations and economics.
At age 25 Scott started his first commercial woodwork business, serving the Central Coast of California all the way across the nation to Florida for ultra-high-end woodwork interiors of movie stars, NBA greats, and business moguls.
In California he met his beautiful wife, Leslie, who also had dreams of international adventure and eventually, three children later, they moved to China.
For the last ten years, Scott has owned and operated a woodworking factory in China’s far northwest, filling Chinese customers’ beautiful homes with authentic traditional American and European design, materials, and craftsmanship.
While most of Scott’s work is sold to the luxury market in China, he continues to serve residential and commercial customers around the world.
Now, with the children grown, he and Leslie have expanded into East Central China making their rare woodworking services more easily accessible to luxury home customers in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou.
Scott loves to satisfy customers’ desires for one-of-a-kind luxury interiors. The aim is twofold: display the beauty of traditional woodwork and deliver highly functional, comfortable, safe products for the well-being of the customer’s entire family.
