About Steve Shannon

Steve Shannon is a highly regarded, professional segmented woodturner. His custom designed wood pieces reflect an exciting, creative and contemporary flair. His blends of woods express both a harmony and genuine integration of nature's best offerings. Such expression can be witnessed in his custom crafted memorial urns.

Steve's passion began during his first high school woodworking class. His subsequent work in the tool and die industry as a mold maker provided him with a special and unique perspective for his craft. With the production of hundreds of his elegant segmented wooden urns made over the past 25 years, Steve has become one of the most sought after woodturners.
On a personal note, Steve has served as an inspiration to others who also have Type I diabetes by completing a number of marathons and triathlons. His strong desire to demonstrate that any obstacle can be overcome transfers into his pursuit of excellence in his handcrafted funeral urns.
