Hello, We are RedeemedWoodturning

Jason and Sophie Benkendorf

My partner in life and in business. No one else I would want to do life with. We were recently doing an event this past summer and a lady came into our booth and asked "If was the wood turner?" I replied "yes mam." My wife then replied,  "That she is the everything else." The lady said "Then I need to speak to you." My wife takes care of all the things that I am not good at, she is amazing. Thank you Sophie.

Mathew 19:4-6

4 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”


My Support System

Sophie, Lottie Rose, Grammy and Poppy

My parents have been supporting my en-devour from the beginning. It is truly a family affair. They come and help for with booth for all of the weekend shows. For some of the shows we do, we spend the weekend camping. I am truly blessed to have  such a great support system.



This past year my daughter has started sowing our handmade bags. A future entrepreneur. She is a huge help at the shows and is always ready to model one of the bowls as a hat. HaHa!!


Thank you

I feel very blessed to have been given a gift from God to follow my passion of turning wood. I definitely  have gained a stronger connection to Jesus through sharing my story of redemption and sharing the "Good News"  of Jesus Christ. Excited for what the future holds. Be blessed.

1 Thessalonians 4:9-12

9 But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another; 10 and indeed you do so toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more; 11 that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, 12 that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing.
