The crafter was born and raised in Maine and still has the accent to prove it. He currently lives in Connecticut where he has been for the past 40+ years. By profession was a manufacturing engineer since college, working mostly in the aerospace industry with a short tenure in the semiconductor field.
He worked with wood as a hobby for over 50 years. For ten of those years he did whole house restorations. Around 1992 he converted to making household objects from domestic and exotic woods. He has made shop furniture, house furniture, display tables, cabinets, tool chests, scroll saw puzzles, elegant wood boxes from a combination of domestic and exotic woods and turned bowls and vases.
In the beginning, most of the projects were for the household or were made as gifts for family and friends. The past few years he started to sell work at craft shows and has been getting a good response.
Later he decided to teach others woodworking skills in his shop. He calls it "The Krowe's Nest". It’s been fun helping others make something they want out of wood and seeing the delight in their accomplishments. Go to the Student projects page to see some samples of their work.
Thanks for stopping by.
