Don Hansted ~ Woodworking Editor

Don Halsted has been an avid weekend woodworker for over 30 years. His background in mechanical engineering drives his interest in design, building and, of course, tools. He has done coursework at the North Bennett Street School in Boston and attended lectures by masters in the field. Don has matched antique moldings, built a walk in redwood wine cellar, cradles, toy boxes, Shaker boxes & trays and numerous bookcases and cabinets. Don enjoys the entire process from project design, milling rough lumber, trying new ideas on prototypes, building jigs for “production runs” and, to a lesser degree, finishing. He like to use a combination of antique tools, hand tools and modern machine tools. He looks for well-designed and well-built tools of each type.
