This 2,900 square-foot house located in the Berkshires is built on a former campground including 200 feet of lakefront and was built with a mix of modern materials.This design of Meryl and Ed Mandelbaum's home was based on a barn and included three cottages the original owners had rented out for many families and guests.

Pictured below is 92 year old Norman Gary (left) with one of our craftsmen, Ken Vetterick (right). Norman Gary was one of the recipients to The Joinery's long standing Meals on Wheels delivery years ago and now visits us frequently to get some of our scrap wood to keep his house warm. Norman is quite the character and a good friend to The Joinery.  He was a child actor during his youth appearing in a number of movies including, the American comedy drama Captain January in 1936 featuring Shirley Temple. Norman visits The Joinery every so often to check out our different kinds of scrap wood available in our free bin, right outside the wood shop. Norman is by far one of our oldest and most entertaining of friends, and he still drives!

The Joinery had the pleasure of working with three individuals who took part in our Arts and Crafts Bed class this fall. These participants had the chance to choose between several different wood types and worked eight hour days to build the bed of their choice.

* Update: The Joinery no longer offers classes. Please visit the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers for great woodworking classes here.
