Darryn Wright considers himself lucky. He’s happy. He’s surrounded by people he loves. “I’m so thankful for my blended family. I’m thankful for my wife,” Wright said. He had a happy childhood in his home state of Idaho, and even after moving across the country to Texas 16 years ago, he’s remained close with his mom and brother back home. He found a passion in wood turning after working at a lumber yard, learning more about wood and ultimately receiving a lathe as a birthday gift from his wife. He comes home at the end of each day to a colorful house with two dogs, typically curled up on the couch. He can do most anything he puts his mind to. Help raise six kids? Sure. Wood turning? Yeah, and he’s curated the perfect space in his garage for it, too — complete with a model of the Millennium Falcon, retro wall art and tools — a room that reflects the marks Wright leaves on the world around him, whether it’s on the space he occupies, the ink on his skin or the carves he makes in wood.
