Boyd Hutchison was raised in Ohio, where his early passions included forests and wood. He holds four degrees in forest-related subjects, including a doctorate in forest meteorology from Yale University. After retiring from a 26-year career in forestry research, Boyd developed his woodworking hobby into a full-time business, specializing in reproductions and adaptations of period furniture. He also serves part-time at the Shaker Museum and Library in Old Chatham, NY, where his responsibilities involve maintenance and repair of artifacts in the museum’s collection. He lives in Sheffield, Mass., with his wife and three golden retrievers.
