The Newest Traditional Woodworker

//The Newest Traditional Woodworker


Forgive me for such a personal post, but I want to introduce you to the world’s newest traditional woodworker: Baby Ethan Farnsworth! (sorry about the cheesy video above, but it was fun to make). My beautiful wife Laura was a champ bringing such a big 10 pound baby boy into this world.


Baby Ethan gave us a scare when he came out not breathing, but an amazing hospital staff resuscitated him and nursed him back to health over the next week.


I know, I know, he looks more like an astronaut, but trust me…he will become a woodworker!

Here are a few more special photos of this huge baby who is destined to build beautiful furniture with handplanes and handsaws:






A very proud papa (for the 4th time):


Home from the hospital…


…and already a comedian:



If you send your congratulations below (in a comment) I’ll make sure I send it to Baby Ethan!
