My formal training is in engineering (civil & electrical). I started woodworking in earnest in the early 1970s building, maintaining, and repairing pipe organs, a field where a lot of specialized woodworking is required. My first woodworking “set-up” consisted of a very well used Delta 8" table saw (which I still own) and a drill press stand for a portable electric drill.
Over the years I have acquired real woodworking machines as projects expanded that would fund their purchase. My shop now consists of an assortment of power tools and machines collected over a 35+ year period.
Much of wooden items I have crafted over the years are mechanical components of pipe organs with intricate air passages necessary for the control of wind to the speaking pipes of the organ. Other wood construction includes support framework, often with mortise and tenon joinery and casework typical of most cabinet or furniture shops. Our work also involves electrical control circuits and sheet metal wind conductors (similar to dust collectors) which we generally fabricate in our shop or on site.
Organ building notwithstanding, don’t be surprised to see us construct a set of kitchen cabinets, an end table or even a bird house when time permits.
