...And much more!
I live in Oakland, CA and my passion is making beautiful objects out of wood. I love the process of starting from raw material and turning it into something beautiful and useful. I'm on Instagram @Ross_Peters_Woodworking, and my Etsy store is called RossPetersWoodworks.
I have a degree in mechanical engineering from Cal Poly SLO, but after working an office job for several years after college I realized that I wasn't going to be happy working in a cubicle in front of a computer screen all the time. I am much happier when I can be creative and work with my hands. I can now say that I love what I do, & I am committed to becoming a skilled woodworker.
Currently I am taking classes in the Wood Technology program at Laney College in Oakland, CA to improve my skills & make connections in the woodworking community. When I am not in class I am building projects to sell on my Etsy store, and doing projects on commission when they come along.
