Instructor Biography:

Francisco Leon's years of woodworking experience, combined with his love of design and his innate creativity and desire for the outdoors give him a unique advantage as a woodworker to make intended projects a reality. He brings a level of experience and skill necessary to achieve the aesthetic look and level of quality that is expected.

Francisco was first introduced to woodworking in his early teens by helping his father with home projects in his hometown Caracas, Venezuela. He has since relocated to the USA to pursue a career as an aerospace engineer with a strong passion to teach and open his own woodworking business, De Madera, "of wood." Since commencing his career as an engineer and with the belief that woodworking came naturally, he has since completed several personal wood projects including bedroom & child nursery furniture, display cases and a variety of children's toys. Woodworking craft is a combination of time, desire, and skill that only one can achieve with commitment. Francisco offers this simple commitment to you to teach and pursue what he loves.

His hope is that through woodworking he can leave something with you that can be cherished for years to come. Francisco resides in the Boston area with his wife Karen & beautiful baby girl.
