About

The Yankee Woodsmith, Located in Dover NH

The Yankee Woodsmith

The Yankee Woodsmith Woodcrafts was founded by Ken Cayer. He is known worldwide for the reputation for producing high quality handmade woodcrafts ranging from the simple to more esoteric items.

Ken’s love for woodworking dates back to 1958. He was faced with making a decision which career path to pursue at his high school vocational facility, wood shop and electronics held the most interest. He chose electronics and went on to make a career of it, turning to woodworking as a hobby. After retiring in 2003 Ken turned his attention to assembling a wood working shop and pursuing his interest in wood working.

Ken worked 37 years for a fortune Five Hundred company as a field Service Engineer, He and his wife Kaaren also owned a photographic studio specializing in high end Wedding and Portrait photography. Ken has many interest and hobbies ranging from Ham radio, photography, cooking, organic gardening, hiking, wood working, meditation and the martial arts.
Ken holds degrees in karate, judo and Usui Reiki and presently is very much involved with Tai Chi Chuan Chi Quang Qung.

Ken’s wood crafts reflect the training, and discipline has learned from Eastern culture.

Much of the wood used in his products are native to New Hampshire. Ken is always on the look out for new and interesting species of wood and many of his items feature wood from South America, Africa and other far away places. The wood is kiln dried to specific moisture content and must be of the highest quality to be used in any of his projects. Most of the items produced by the Yankee Woodsmith are unique and custom made to order.

Ken is a member of Guild of New Hampshire Woodworkers and League of N.H. Craftsmen.
Specialties:
Photography, Electronics, Wood working, Martial Arts, Organic gardening, and Business management.
