Matt Shields (pictured) is a 4th generation woodworker who began learning at the age of 7. His great-great grandfather worked in the Chrysler plant in Detroit when it opened in the 1940's building lockers and desks for his fellow employees. Matt's training began in elementary school, helping his father build Shaker furniture.
Matt builds furniture as gifts for family and friends. Many of the pieces are also donated to charity auctions.
