SA's Resident Artist, Sculptor, Woodworker
Stop by Southern Accents wood shop during the week and you will likely find Josh Howe hard at work doing what he loves most... working with his hands. Josh is multi talented and brilliantly creative. We met Josh two years ago at our annual alley party that he attended with his wife Amber, who had been working with us to coordinate the events entertainment. There was an instant connection and shortly after Josh joined our team.
Josh came to SA with an extensive background in granite, stone, ceramic and wood. Josh is a graduate of the University of Montevallo with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree. His concentration in sculpture was made evident when he showed up recently with some magnificent pieces that he had sculpted from wood and metal. Josh especially loves working with tools, but also throughly enjoys the creative process of seeing a project through from conception to completion. He has been instrumental in working on many recent projects for SA from designing an award last year for Main Street Alabama to our most recent design projects for Southern Makers.
Josh spends the bulk of his time at Southern Accents in the wood shop where he does everything from repairing salvaged antique items such as doors and mantels to designing and building custom items from salvaged wood for our many customers. Away from work Josh enjoys restoring old furniture and is particularly fascinated with the history of architectural pieces. His greatest joy however, is spending time with his wife Amber and their two young children Vesta and Sylas.
Our in house wood shop allows us the ability to strip and sand many of the architectural pieces that we salvage, bringing the wood back to a natural finish. Josh and Roger are also able to make needed repairs as well as custom build doors, tables and other items from salvaged wood. If you would like a quote on a custom job, please give us a call or stop by our showroom during regular business hours.
