Ahwatukee Foothills resident Richard Altenhofen was recently selected to create wood art for the Governor’s Art Awards. The local man turns bowls, pens, chess sets and more from his home workshop after working for an engineering firm in the Valley. “I was ready for something else, and here I am. When I left, I said, ‘If I don’t do it now, it’s never going to happen.’” April, 2010
