My biggest woodworking interest is recycling of old or use materials. I am currently publicizing our use of approximately 1000 Bd Ft of both Long Leaf Pine and White Pine from the old Pandora Sweater factory in Manchester, NH. The wood for the Pandora beams was harvested 159 years ago, from 100+ year old trees in our southern states.
I started woodworking while living in New York City around 1976 and have been woodworking for about 35 years now. I was first influenced by Fine Woodworking Magazine and am 99% self educated from magazines, books and the Guild.
I am the owner (or maybe it owns me) of New Hampshire Accents Fine Crafts, LLC for fifteen years now. ww.nhaccents.com
