Peter with his restored Herreshoff Columbia tender.
About Peter Peter grew up in Setauket, New York, on the north shore of Long Island. The days he spent boating on the bays and harbors of Long Island Sound led to his fascination with the seafaring arts. Peter has a B.S. in Industrial Arts Education, and a M.A. in Liberal Studies. He is a certified Technology Education teacher and has spent more than thirty years teaching woodworking to students of all ages in both public and private schools. Peter also volunteers his time at the Connecticut River Museum in Essex, Connecticut and runs woodworking activities for the Boy Scouts. When he is not teaching or in his workshop, Peter enjoys doing carpentry and construction projects on his property in Deep River, Connecticut. Projects have included: restoring the Buckingham House, building the country barn workshop, framing and finishing a post and beam carriage shed/garage and, most recently, completing a colonial reproduction gambrel roof Cape Cod-style home. Peter lives with his wife, Pamela, two Curly-Coated Retrievers and a rescue cat.
