Rex is a lifelong tinkerer. From pinewood derby cars to full sized furniture and everything in between, he has whittled, carved, or turned his way through it! Rex is the heart and hands of Sarkanys Rising; he puts his all into each piece, whether a custom order or regular stock item. Every piece we sell is uniquely handcrafted and Rex’s hands do most of the crafting.
He is a true Jack of All Trades and can fix most items in the shop with time and a toothpick, or at least that is how it seems from the outside. Rex grew up in California and Hawaii and was a Corpsmen in the Navy in his mispent youth. Prior to retirement Rex worked as a Medical Technician at many Veteran’s Administration hospitals around the country, finally ending up in Tucson where the shop is at this time.
