Instructor: Teri Masaschi
Teri's career in antique restoration, furniture building and furniture finishing began as a fourteen year old apprentice to a Fine Arts Dealer in Amherst, New Hampshire. There she learned the traditional methods for conserving and restoring valuable antiques along with learning to build furniture in the Queen Anne, Federal and Chippendale styles.
Teri was Product Manager for Woodworker's Supply Inc. where she was responsible for testing, acquiring and maintaining all of the finishing products in the national mail order catalog. Her responsibilities also included trouble-shooting problems for national customers and teaching store employees about the finishing products in the stores. She left Woodworker's Supply after six years to work at a high end finishing shop in Santa Fe, New Mexico in addition to doing her own custom work. She writes for Fine Woodworking Magazine and has taught finishing at The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine and at The Santa Fe Community College.
