Woodworker: Bruce EatonEaton spent nearly a decade working as an environmental engineer and became increasingly miserable “watching other people make stuff.” A local woodworking class led him to NBSS. Eaton now runs his own shop. He built this Shaker desk (29 in. deep by 42 in. wide by 48 in. tall) from Vermont cherry. The interior is curly maple and the pulls are apple and ebony. “I’ve been thrilled ever since North Bennet Street,” he says, reporting that although commissions are slow in coming, “I’m trying to be patient about it.”
