Location: Tucson, AZ

Ted has almost half a century of woodworking experience as well as development of innovative products. His experience includes studying in Europe to develop expertise in historic woodworking tools, materials, and methods/styles in both furniture and architecture. He apprenticed as an ecclesiastical carver/mill worker in church restoration, concentrating on those damaged as a result of World War II. He has continued with reproduction home building, furniture and interiors, commercial projects, and has been recognized as an outstanding artist in bronze work.

Brian has been working in wood for over 40 years. Starting as a carpenter, he has spent the last 30 years as a professional woodworker and co-founded the Alamo Woodworkers Guild, a cooperative in Tucson's Warehouse Arts District. Subsequently, he and Ted co-founded the New Guilds Workshop. Brian's interests and experience have progressed from furniture restoration and theatrical sets to architectural millwork and designing/building one-of-a-kind furniture.
Brian and Ted's current focus - bringing their many years of shop experience to developing versatile and safe tools and to documenting some of their more specialized techniques - is sure to benefit the next generation of woodworkers. Examples of their work can be seen at
