Gary Pichon
Gary Pichon is a retired - no, quit - corporate guy who does many different types of woodworking. He prefers Shaker-style designs in cabinets and case goods and Windsor forms in chairs and settees. Gary is known for his encouraging teaching style, especially in giving beginners their start with woodworking tools. When not working wood, he rides his bicycle or motorcycle and is a county commissioner in Georgia.
