Mike Dunajski
 
I have loved wood working for as long as I can remember. I turned that passion for making things into a career of over 40 years in the construction field as a general contractor. My focus is on custom homes where I can incorporate the items made in my shop into the design and finish of the home. I enjoy reusing materials that would have ended up in a landfill and turning them into family treasures.
 
 
 
Jim Hanson
 
Jim started carving around 1973 or '74 with a night class at one of the local high schools. It took about seventeen seconds and he was hooked! He started in relief carving, mostly military badges, pilot and navigator wings. Slowly he moved over to working in the round. Jim has worked on western figures, both caricature and realistic. To keep current and improve his skills, he has taken seminars with some of the best carving instructors in the country. Jim started conducting classes at Woodcraft five years ago, working mostly with beginning carvers. "I believe the beginning carver should have sound basic principles to begin with that will result in safe work habits. I also believe the instructor should encourage and help the student to improve their work anytime after the class is concluded," says Jim. He is a current member of the following organizations: National Woodcarvers Association, California Carvers Guild, and Capital Wood Carvers Association.
 
 
 
Jeremy Nuttall
 
My love for woodworking started at the young age of 13 in my junior high woodshop class. I took shop classes all through junior and high school. I earned an associates degree in Cabinetry and Architectural Woodwork as well as a Bachelors of Science in Technology Teacher Education where I earned a degree in teaching. I have taught at Woodcraft for many years teaching woodturning, cabinetry and general woodworking skills and machine maintenance and use. I have been a cabinet maker for about 20 years. Currently I am a teacher in a junior high school.

Rico Saboya
 
Rico Saboya was born in Brasil, a country rich in European influence. With that came an acquired taste for fine furnishings and handcrafted time pieces heavy in deep tones and styles. This became the foundation of his approach to woodwork, which began in the late 1970’s after discovering woodshop in high school. From a modest beginning as an apprentice trim & finish carpenter, Rico has evolved his craftsmanship into a specialty antique & vintage furnishing restoration and custom woodworker. Using a hybrid of old world style with a modern approach to his projects.

Being retired, he has turned his attention to woodturning with a specialty in segmented vessels. He is active in the Sacramento Area Woodworkers Club. He sells a lot of his turned items in several craft shows around town.
 
 
 
Ray Woodbeck
 
Woodworking has been a passion of mine ever since I can remember. My first woodworking tools were given to me at 5 years old. I used to cut big wood into little wood. Now...over 30 years later, I am still at it. My passion turned into a hobby, then into a part-time job that I love. After years of making personalized gifts for friends and family, I now offer my services to the general public. This is not my career (I am a H.S. Math Teacher) so my projects are not about money, rather the love of the art of woodworking and the natural beauty of wood. Recently, I have begun teaching woodworking classes at Woodcraft so others can find the same pleasure in woodworking.
