The latest issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine features a profile I wrote on Marco Terenzi, a young Michigan woodworker and toolmaker who specializes in making small – really small – stuff.
I got to spend a day with Marco in his shop, which he has had since he was 9, and get a close look at his work. Marco happens to be an incredibly quotable person, so the interview was fun, and learning how he got into this line of work was quite a tale (think: soldering iron and pen turning).
The article is in the February 2016 issue, which you can purchase here. Or spend a few extra dollars and get a year’s subscription to the magazine here.
Below are some extra photos from my visit with Marco that I didn’t have room for in the article.

so amazing, nice stuff the detail is unreal
Reblogged this on oshriradhekrishnabole.
The detail he uses in these tiny pieces is amazing!
Are those castings?
I saw his stuff at Handworks and chatted with him a bit. His work completely blew my mind. The dovetails on the tool chest alone were astonishing. I wish I knew he was from Michigan because I’m from the Big Mitten myself.
I’d love to know how to do (or attempt to do) some of this. At least the woodworking part of it. I get the feeling that the people who do this are a secretive bunch (unlike most woodworkers) that don’t like to give up their methods. But maybe that’s just my uninformed impression.
Perhaps there’s a ‘lost art’ book possibility here?
Marco is teaching a class in micro-woodworking at Marc Adams School of Woodworking next year.
Cool, thanks for the heads-up.
