About Pepperwood Burl: Although, the Pepperwood tree has edible spicy red berries, it is not a true pepper plant. It is native to the Andean foothills of Peru and grows at elevation below 200 feet. Through human cultivation, its range is now all along the Pacific Coast of the Americas.

Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Louis Charlett started his career as a civil engineer. Changing course in the mid-1970's, he moved to Maine. His new position as joinery shop foreman in a yacht building company introduced him to the world of woodworking.

In 1981, he heeded his creative call and started Charlett Woodworking.

From the artist: "I vividly recall, as a boy, walking in the woods and passing my hands over the bark of the trees as I went...feeling the different textures and feeling a connection. I still feel that connection to the wood each time I go into the studio. Enjoy my work, and thank you."
