Miles Adkins became interested in woodworking when he was a little boy, helping his father in their family workshop. His love of the craft guided his life since then, and today he has a company producing quality wood furniture and ornaments. Miles believes in hard work, dedication to detail, and the beauty of the craft. As his business took off and young woodworkers joined his workshop, Miles realized he had another passion in life: teaching. He thinks that one of the secrets of his successful business is his ability to impart his knowledge to his apprentices. Today Miles creates very special woodwork objects that are designed especially for his favorite clients. Meanwhile, he trusts his students to lead the workshop. It is that kind of confidence you can expect to discover in his books. Miles' teaching style is practical, straight-forward, and full of love for woodworking. Reading his books, you will benefit from his decades of experience in both woodworking and teaching. If you're looking for a teacher you can finally introduce you to the world of woodworking, you will find no one better than Miles. When he's not writing books or running his woodworking business, Miles enjoys spending time with his family in a cabin by the lake that he built together with his father.
