Allen Thompson's Profile
My love for wood must come from my Grandfather who was a master finish carpenter. It must be in my blood because he passed before I could learn much from him. Out of 19 grandchildren, I’m the only one who has taken up woodworking.
I’ve always loved wood. When I was in grade school I would pound together space ships for my Star Wars figures. Then there was my three story tree house. Finally, high school wood shop!
I now have my own home wood shop business. Most of my projects are my own design or I will improve a purchased plan to suit me. I’ve made many custom projects for people who have come to me with their ideas.
My wife is an Art teacher. She is great at critiquing my new designs and works. I have two children, Girl (10) and Boy (6). They like to hang out in the wood shop with me and pound together space ships from my scraps!
