Ron Heiden of Heiden’s Woodworking is one of the only craftsmen in the world capable of completely restoring, refinishing, or repairing the world’s supply of classic Ford “Woodie” Wagons, which are synonymous with California surf culture. He collects scrap wood from junked Woodies and cars that he has collected and uses even the dry rotted and broken pieces to build the proper templates for his restorations. The gifted craftsman says its the joy his work brings others that brings him joy.
