Description of Apprenticeship:

I interested in an opportunity to improve my woodworking skills and knowledge. If possible I would also be eager to learn machining or metal working. My original education was in philosophy and biology. I have worked about a decade in plant physiology and ecology and more recently in biomedical research. The latter experience was away from my passion, however, it taught me an attention to detail and patience that allowed me to enhance my woodworking. Previous experience in plant physiology has informed my interest in wood as the product of a living organism and wood as a material. Over the past several years I have reduced my responsibilities to allow me to devote myself to more meaningful and satisfying work.
