Handmade Portraits: Old School Tools
Read the full Etsy blog post.Orien MacDonald, a.k.a. Old School Tools, grew up in Alaska and Southern New Mexico, where his parents were part of the Back-to-the-Land movement. His dad taught workshops in building handmade houses out of adobe clay and had a vast woodshop where Orien whittled his first woodworking project at the age of five. It didn't take Orien long to recognize his passion for handicrafts.

It took him ten years to hone his craft, but he persisted in raising the level of workmanship with each new challenge.moreless
