My name is Joe Zeh and my avocation is woodworking (Zeh is pronounced Zay). I labored in the high tech world of computer and graphics chip design for 35 years before retiring on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 1999, also the eve of predicted Y2K doom. My early retirement goal was to build a home with attached woodshop in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts and build the very best furniture I am capable of - however long it takes and whatever it cost. I wanted to do as much by hand and traditional means as practical. Further I wanted to be in control of my craft – I did'nt want to build 100 identical tables for a craft fair simply because I could sell all that I made. I decided that building custom furniture for my family and friends was how I could achieve my goal.
So now I am a simple cabinetmaker who operates a small one person woodworking shop in Worthington, Massachusetts which I call Swamp Road Wood Works. My furniture is mostly original design, and all of it is hand crafted from hardwood milled in my shop.
