Robert McSwegin

Denver, CO


“What I like most about hand tools are the serenity and exactness that can be achieved in their use.”


Robert formally started woodworking in 2007, when he moved to Boston to attend North Bennet Street School's two-year Cabinet and Furniture Making program. In 2009 and 2011, he worked as a teaching assistant at the Center For Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine, during their summer workshop program. During this time, he realized how much he enjoyed teaching others about woodworking. Robert currently works as a carpenter in Colorado. In addition to woodworking, Robert enjoys snowboarding, hiking, and pretty much any other outdoor activity.
