About endgrainguy

Sales 656
On Etsy since 2006

Al Ladd has been making his livelihood entirely through woodcraft for over thirty years.

I'm a passionate woodworker, a professional for over 30 years, whose love for the work and material have continually grown along with my knowledge and abilities. My partner in life and work, Marilyn, adds an extra creative voice and pair of skilled hands. Together we make the finest small wood craft items you'll ever see, sometimes one at a time, sometimes in small batches, but always with the love that few professionals retain, and with respect of the privilege it is to make beautiful things as livelihood.

As a self taught woodworker I have an original voice and perspective, with an old fashioned belief in simple beauty and the possibility of perfection.

We live a close-to-the land life in rural western Massachusetts, growing a huge garden, living in a post and beam super-insulated house we built ourselves. We run our antique and modern woodworking equipment, including the computer controlled router I built myself from parts purchased, many used, off ebay, largely from a rooftop photovoltaic array--a solar powered CNC router!

Remaining true to my pact with myself to produce better and more interesting work every year, I'm now creating boxes and other woodworking I couldn't even have imagined twenty years ago, when I'd already been earning my livelihood as a woodworker for over a decade.
