Andrew Robertson

My name is Andrew Robertson and I have been a woodworker for nearly 15 years.  I started, like most, in a school woodshop and luckily had grandfather that nurtured my passion for creating woodwork.  Although I love making just about any project out of wood, I have found the lathe to be my tool of choice for a few years now.  Thanks and I hope to see you around  the woodshop!

Walter Farson

I have been in woodworking for 30 years and a volunteer foreman for 2 years. My interests are cabinet making and furniture having made a variety of pieces in several styles. I collect and dry my own lumber. I’m also an avid wood turner having turned many bowls and other projects.

I have spent a lifetime working in construction, which included starting a successful company known as Liberty Home Improvement, Inc. During that time I also enjoyed home projects such as adding a family room and sunroom to our home. A third project was building my woodworking shop in the yard so that I could build furniture for our home, family, and friends. I have 31 years of woodworking experience.

I have served as the first President for Parks and Rec Woodshop of Harford County from October 2011 – October 2013. During this time I was able to secure non-profit status for the Woodshop. I have been a foreman who enjoys assisting members since the Woodshop opened in April 2009.

Thomas Wewerka

My father was a cabinet maker for Owens Yacht and instilled in me the love for working with wood at a very early age. My brother and I built our first boat at the age of 12. After the teen years and a stint in the Army I returned to woodworking, more specifically, cabinetmaking.

For fifteen years I took cabinetmaking and then afterwards taught it as an assistant teacher in night school for Harford Community College. I had my own business installing kitchens, building decks, and club basements. I am now retired.

I have no favorite type of woodworking as I love any and all of it. I really get excited when there is a chance to share some of the knowledge that I acquired over the last 40 years with someone new while they are doing a project.
