About Nelson Fine Art and Gifts

About Nelson Fine Art & Gifts

In 1994, my wife and I bought a small woodshop in Steubenville, OH and embarked on a journey to transform what had been a family tradition and hobby into a way of life. Our livelihood has grown to support our family, our team of artisans, and our local community as we have made urban revitalization a priority in our company.

We are proud to call ourselves American makers and are strongly committed to the quality craftsmanship and creative design behind each of our original products. A combination of conventional techniques and modern machinery allows us to build items to last for generations to come. It is our mission to make products that inspire goodness, truth, and beauty in everyday life.
