I trained as a Cabinet Maker/Fine Furniture Craftsman in the Cape Cod area in the late 1950's to early 60's. After graduating from vocational training I formed my own home construction business, taking the necessary classes at Fitchburg State College to become a teacher. I taught cabinet making and home construction at vocational schools, high schools and post secondary schools in Massachusetts and Georgia and later taught adult education classes in Indiana for I.U.P.U.I. and the UAW related to home maintenanse and remodeling. In MA. I had a 17 year old female student who took 3rd place in a national furniture contest ( she also won a 500.00,s and a gold plated hammer ), in GA. I taught students with some learning disabilities and the class took 1st place cup out of 29 schools. Since my retirement 8 years ago I have been engaged in making furniture for Renaissance Fairs, Craft Fairs/Shows. I was commissioned to make 3 Glastonbury Chairs ( 15th century chair designed by the Glastonbury Monks in the 15th century) for St. Martins Episcopal Church in Williamsburg, VA. I have also made Glastonbury Chairs and Rocking chairs for professors at the Sewanee University. Most of my wood is local wood that I air dry myself - cherry, red and white oak, ambrosia maple, walnut, hickory, maple, some times I use exotic wood like Zebra Wood
