Welcome to Doctor’s Woodshop
Doctor's Woodshop will be at at SWAT in August. If you have a chance to get there, SWAT is the best of the regional symposia that I have attended.
On 25 and 26 July, I will be demonstrating at the Woodcraft in Eugene, Oregon .
Thanks to all of you that came by the booth at the AAW Symposium! It is nice to be able to put faces with names.
We produce specialty wood finishes, primarily for the woodturner. A few years ago, I realized I didn’t like the finishing products that were available commercially. Over time, these commercial finishes dulled and hid the figure and grain of the wood. The products were unnecessarily high in organic solvents and they were too expensive. As a Professor of Biochemistry, I knew something about the chemistry of finishes. As a specialist in Biochemical Toxicology, I understood the risks of solvent exposure. I began making finishes for myself, then for my woodworking friends. Retail outlets began selling the Doctor’s Woodshop products and here we are today, offering the product line to a much wider audience. As they say, if you want it done right, do it yourself. I resolved to do it better and make it safer. The third part of the mission statement is to sell the products for a better price.
