East to West Shoppe is an online store located in Northern California that values both the quality of workmanship and respect of craftsmanship. With over 17 years of managing experience, importing and retailing for Japan Woodworker (prior to being sold to Woodcraft in 2012) , I have learned to love and appreciate the products imported from both East and West.
I would like to continue and carry the same tradition and respect that I’ve developed through the years. My goal is to bring you the best of both worlds together – thus East to West Shoppe was born! This venture is my own journey in sharing with you my passion and insight. This is my personal invitation to browse through my site, here you will find something for your own use or as a gift, professional tools of the trade for woodworking, woodcarving, gardening and culinary.
Finally, allow me to deviate a bit from tools and gift ideas, I would like to share and hopefully gain some feedback from you about my other passion, painting. I'm posting some of my sketches in pencil and watercolor impressions.
Thank you for stopping by.
