Leaving graduate school in the early 1970’s, I envied friends who had a cabinet shop.  It resonated deep with me, that at the end of the day there was something  created  that did not exist before. After a short internship as a carpenters apprentice I was able to be trained by the State of Michigan […]

Mark is an accomplished turner and active forum member who joined Segmented Woodturners in late 2018 looking to learn about the art of segmented turning. I have a confession to make.

Then renovation after renovation followed for 20 years and numerous houses, mostly structural and installation work. Finally, all the […]

While in the sixth grade I bought a hammer to bang some nails for a neighborhood hideout behind our garage.  It is still my go-to hammer.  Then, in the eighth grade, I made a knic-knac shelf in shop class.  It is still in use today at home. I next had a craftsman jigsaw and plane […]
