Employees
 
Beth Bryan
 
Beth discovered woodworking through her husband, Jim, who encouraged her to adopt a hobby, which she did--in between softball, knitting, sewing, and craft-making. She started working at Woodcraft in 1998, although she did not significantly increase her time at the store. You see, prior to working at Woodcraft, Beth browsed & shopped at the store so often, full-time employment essentially didn't increase her hours there. Beth enjoys scrolling, carving, and turning. She is on the Board of Directors of the Metro Carvers Club, and is always eager to talk about carving and other woodworking endeavors. She teaches beginning scroll-saw classes.
 
 
 
Joe De Mist
 
Simon and Garfunkel once sang about how little they learned in high school. Well, they apparently didn't attend school with Joe in the 70's, because that's where he first learned woodworking. Since then, he's expanded his basic-level understanding to an advanced level. Joe delves into a wide-array of woodworking, including carving & furniture-making. Joe teaches cabinet-making, table-making, routering and carving classes.
 
 
 
Matthew Scher
 
Matthew graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Center for Creative Studies in 1987. After pursuing a variety of artistic & creative endeavors, Matthew began woodworking. He found his passion in furniture designing & making. A selection of Matt's works can be viewed at matthewscher.com. One of his pieces is also depicted in August, 2005 issue of Fine Woodworking Magazine. Matthew teaches intermediate & advanced classes, which cover topics such as hand-cut dovetails and hand tools.
 
 
 
Jim Bryan
 
Jim came to Woodcraft with over 30-years experience in structural steel fabrication & design. "Steel was my work; wood was my passion," says Jim. His grandfather was a Master Woodworker for Chrysler, so you might say that wood is in his genes (and in his jeans). He enjoys all aspects of woodworking, especially teaching beginners to use tools safely and to appreciate the miraculous aspects of wood. He has been "practicing with wood for 20 years." He enjoys turning, carving, and building small projects.
 
 
 
Richard Bork
 
We are saddened by the passing of a long-time employee & friend, Richard. Richard retired a few years ago, after serving for many, many years as our resident finish & Early-American furniture expert. A former woodshop teacher, it was said that Richard was so knowledgeable that he'd forgotten more than most people would ever learn.
