On this edition of Woodworking Adventures, we take a look at the life and times of Raymond Kinman. From musician to Disney Imagineer artist, our interview begins with how Ray got started in carving with no woodworking knowledge and only two tools. Ray explains his teachings and discusses a very special person who carries on his legacy. We also spend some time in Ray's shop carving, talking techniques and details. Up next on.... Woodcraft’s Woodworking Adventures.
Eric Gorges grew up in a woodworking family in Detroit, Michigan; his grandfather was a professional cabinetmaker and his dad was a serious hobbyist. But Eric’s career path led him to a lucrative corporate job. In his twenties, he began suffering panic attacks, but the road to recovery was found by working with his hands.
