Don Bullock has been actively involved with woodworking as a hobby off and on since the mid-1960s. Recently he and his wife, Pam, retired from teaching after more than 35 years and moved to the San Diego, California area. On their new property they were able to finally build a dedicated workshop for Don. It's his dream shop. He has been operating out of this workshop since 2008. Don decided to name his business WB Fine Woodworking. The WB goes back to a family tradition started by his father.
Don initially learned to work with wood from his father. There was always a workshop located in their home basement or garage. Like most of us who went to school in the 1950s and 1960s Don took shop classes and still has some cherished projects that he made including a couple from the woodshop classes.
Over the years Don has done numerous projects. Many he did for friends and relatives. He can't even remember the number of book shelves he's built or mantle projects he's done for others. Unfortunately most of the his projects either weren't photographed or they were made before digital photography. The preferred method of photography used by Don in those days was slides. Perhaps someday he'll be able to sort through them to find a few photos of his handywork.
Today Don is into different types of projects. Most of them are somewhat related with Arts and Crafts or Craftsman style. He has become a big fan of Greene and Greene as well. Any designs from this period have become his favorite style in woodworking and architecture. He has a list of projects that he'd like to make in the from that period but building a workbench is currently his top priority.
Don is also doing some home improvement projects. The only ones that come close to fine woodworking involve some inside trim work and the gate/shelf he made as a room divider. He has some other home improvement projects on his list of things that need to be done.
Out in Don's workshop he's been doing some cleaning and organization. Finally after moving in nine years ago he's able to do some shop projects. He's trying to get things organized and making it easer to use the tools he has. Making the shop more pleasant to work in is also one of his goals. Don has started a YouTube channel and some social media pages on Facebook and Instagram to share some of his projects and knowledge. He's enjoying sharing his knowledge and love of woodworking with others.
