The Bois Shop

While many people see woodworking as a project pursued by older gentlemen who acquired the skill under the training of masters, or who have had the benefit of wood shop, there’s a young gun up in Newton, Massachusetts who is doing some incredible woodworking using a blend of old-fashioned and new-fangled methods.

Rob Bois in front of one of his pieces

Rob Bois has been blogging for a few years now, and he has been building some great stuff in his shop. Step stools with bold curves. Classic chests of drawers. Screen doors!  Yeah, sometimes you gotta build those, but Rob made a point of putting some classical embellishments to turn a utilitarian piece into a work of art.

Rob crates videos to help readers follow along with his builds, and his easy style makes following along a breeze.
