Don has been actively involved with woodworking as a hobby off and on since the mid-1960s. 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. . He has been operating out of this workshop since 2008. More recently he decided to start a Facebook page, Instagram page and YouTube channel and start a woodworking business dedicated to helping other woodworkers. He's enjoying sharing his knowledge and love of woodworking with others. 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 in the Unites States 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. Back then he never thought of taking pictures of his handiwork. Some may have been photographed when he took photos in his home. 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 furniture and architecture. He has a list of projects that he'd like to make from that period but building a workbench, other shop improvements and some turning projects are currently his top priority.
Yes, Don is also into turning. He learned to turn in the late 60s and early 70s from his father. Recently Don decided to get back into turning and bought a midi-lathe. For now he's doing mostly spindle turning.
As with most home owners 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.

This website is your window into WB Fine Woodworking so I'd like to make it fit your needs and desires, not mine. I realize that my website is not responsive to the various devices that people use to access the Interent. Perhaps sometime I'l have a chance to remake it so that it does. For now I've designed the website the best I can to be useful on all devices. I also realize that my website design is a departure from the norm. Please let me hear from you if you encounter broken links I want to know so that I can fix them and I'd also appreciate any proofreading. I can't find all my mistakes alone. Let me know what you'd like to see here. I greatly appreciate any input I can get. Thank you.
