     Ken is a lifelong woodworker from the Brunswick, Maine area. He has spent many years perfecting his skills in carpentry, fine homebuilding, and woodcarving. In his efforts to create useful and beautiful objects, he has made furniture, architectural details, remote site cabins, and has turned bowls and spoons for craft fairs and galleries all around Maine.
