My name is Pat Murrin from Geneva Illinois. I started woodworking in Middle school and fell in love with it. My first job soon after was refinishing mahogany Chris Craft boats.
Throughout high school I continued taking building trades and wood shop classes. I then moved to Brookings, South Dakota with my parents my senior year and held a job at Preferred Woodwork, a cabinet shop, while I finished high school. After graduating I moved back to Geneva, started my construction management degree and began working for Custom Touch Carpentry, a remodeling company. After two years I was laid off due to lack of work. From there I started focusing on school Full time. In addition I attended classes at Jeff Miller's shop in Chicago. After taking most of the classes Jeff offered, he introduced me to Marc Adams School of woodworking. Last Summer I attended nine classes, and this year I am the intern and I will be attending classes for 15 weeks.
