At The Joinery we rely on our crafstmen for their skills, ideas and their hard work everyday. So every so often we like to feature one of our many wonderful crafters. Featured this time is Dale.
Dale has worked for The Joinery for many years and took a few years off and then came back us this past year and we are happy to have him back. We usually feature descriptions about the craftsperson's favorite wood and favorite piece of furniture but this time we thought Dale's extra curricular activity was too fun to not mention. See photos and specs below on Wild Spirit Racing, Dale's other life.

Taryn Johnson, one of The Joinery's sales staff, had the wonderful opportunity to take a trip to Tulsa, OK to educate high risk/low income fifth graders about the importance of planting trees. She was invited by her dearest friend, Ms. Smith, who recently was accepted into the Teach For America (TFA) program. Before taking her trip, she contacted Tree in a Box , a Portland company which specialized in the tree growing kits shown below, to buy the kits. However when she contacted Trees in Boxes, they instantly offered to donate seventy trees in boxes to the children.

Last June, our woodshop received an impressive piece of machinery, the Cube by Weinig and it arrived all the way from Germany on a large pallet made out of Radiata Pine. We could not let all that solid wood go to waste so we we used the Cube machine to square off all the material and then turned it into some beautiful tables. Below you can see the photos of the Cube arriving on the giant pallet. Scroll down to see what our craftsman decided to make out of it.
