Here's My Woodworking!
By Kelvin Rose
Manchester, NH

I built this double bowfront vanity out of cherry. It took me about
6 months to build, as it was an off and on type project.
A real challenge.

My love for woodworking started in 9th grade shop class. I built a corner curio cabinet for my Mom and I was hooked ever since. 37 years later I am still working at perfecting my craft.

Over the years, I have worked mainly in the remodeling and maintenance industry. Anything to do with wood has always been a huge interest to me. I have done a few consignment pieces in my own shop but mostly I have made things to give as gifts. My main education came more recently when I worked for a professional cabinetry and furniture company for 4 years. As projects became scarce, I found myself woodworking back in my own shop and working full time in the maintenance field again.

I have recently acquired a nice lathe that I rebuilt and I have been exploring and developing my turning skills. That is probably the thing I love most about woodworking. There are so many different fields to explore, from turning to cabinetry to furniture and on and on. I have been working on developing my skills in box making and the many different types of joints that can be involved. I am learning to cut precise dovetails. There are so many helpful videos on YouTube.
