Instructor Bio:

I’m a longtime woodworking and maker and have been a member of Idea Fab Lab for more than a year where I build woodworking projects, bend wood into sculpture and functional objects (including skateboards), and use the laser cutter to create art and crafts. I’ve taught woodworking for a decade and published two how-to books on the subject: “The Handmade Skateboard” (Spring House Press 2014) and “The Handmade Teardrop Trailer (Cedar Lane Press 2020), with more than 18,000 copies sold.
