Shop Tour: Dennis Yamamamoto

Registration is not Required
Join us on Saturday, January 22, at 10 am PST for a Zoom Shop Tour with Dennis Yamamoto.
I have been retired for almost 7 years. With a background in Electrical Engineering, I worked most of my career in EDA or Electronic Design Automation. EDA is software for the design and verification of digital integrated circuits.
I’m a hobbyist woodworker. I got started when we remodeled our kitchen and I decided to build the cabinets. Maybe a little ambitious for my first project, the cabinets, electrical, flooring, tile, etc. took over a year and a half to complete!
About the time I retired we had our house completely remodeled. For my first year of retirement, I made all of the built-ins including custom bedroom closets, display shelves and the pantry. All of the above was more or less self-taught by looking at cabinet construction, books and the internet.
I got better and much more critical after taking several summer classes at the Krenov School. There I completed Tools and Techniques and went back two more summers to work on a box and coopered cabinet. The instructors including Jim Budlong, Todd Sorenson and David Welter were such an inspiration.
In my shop tour I will show a PowerPoint presentation on my woodworking projects, and then a live tour of my garage shop including some 3 phase equipment.
