Meet the Author

David Crowe, like many other boys and some girls, started woodwork when his father decided he was old enough to handle the basic tools safely.

He has always been grateful for those sessions, even though his early desire to make his living from carpentry of some kind was dropped in favor a career in marketing.

His home workshop has been great respite from the stresses of day-to-day business and the pieces he makes, or refinishes, are treasured by his family and friends.

His skills came in very handy when his wife inherited some old furniture which had not been looked after and also to improve the appearance and strength of cheap pieces that they find at garage sales.

He hopes that readers of his first book will be inspired to use the tips he provides and also to encourage their children to learn them as well.
