Art Breese

It’s no accident that Art Breese ended up in a corner of the woodworking world that involves lots of clever fixtures and problem-solving. As a young man, he served an apprenticeship as a jig and tool designer in his native Wales, while also attending college to get a degree in mechanical engineering. After working as an engineer for many years, mostly in California, he moved to Sun City West, a huge retirement community near Phoenix. When he tired of golf, he discovered the mammoth, state-of-the-art woodshop and machine shop there, where Breese and his buddies now crank out segmented turnings of all kinds. Their wives call it “adult day care.”
