About the Artisan

Brian Kugel of KugelMemorabilia.com entered his father’s woodshop at four years

old and, he admits, “I smashed my thumb off! I was four, building my bedroom with my dad. We were building some built-in shelves. He gave me a hammer and then I smashed my thumb off.” Today, with all ten digits intact and a hard lesson learned about hammer safety, Brian’s zeal for working with his hands has spawned over two decades worth of experience leading up to this, the launch of KugelMemorabilia.com.

Brian is a man who lives to work. He spends many of his waking hours between his job in I.T. and his wood shop, he maintains his own webpage at KugelMem.com, he updates and manages his Facebook and Twitter pages, he photographs and edits his own product photos and he landscapes his home in Winona, Minnesota. Right with him through all this work are his wife, Abby, and his German Shepard/Golden Retriever/Bulldog mix Rocky.

Cheerful, laid-back, philanthropic and, above all, professional, Brian Kugel is serious about woodworking.  He’s as approachable as he is polite; please do not hesitate to contact him for commissioned work or with general questions about Kugel Memorabilia’s operations. Brian is the real deal and he would love to help you create museum quality displays for your collectibles.

Kugel Memorabilia donates 5% of each sale to local, national and global charities.
