Jeff Kidwell graduated from high school on a Sunday and started building furniture for us on the following Monday. He is now a lead person in the workshop. The totem he holds was built years ago from bed scraps. Legend holds that it wards off bad wood spirits – the stuff that makes wood split or warp at inopportune moments. Jeff is also a talented metalworker and has completed his latest project, an airboat. Fishing, hunting and a black lab named Diva round out his passions and remaining free time.
