Lead Instructor Tim Rousseau

Tim Rousseau divides his time between teaching at the Center and building furniture on commission in Rockport, ME. He also produces how-to and project videos, including both our own “Welcome to Woodschool” free video library, and series such as “Making a Small Cabinet” and “Build an Asian-Inspired Hall Table” for finewoodworking.com. After completing our Furniture Intensive in 1998, Tim worked in a multifaceted group shop in Hoboken, NJ, before returning to Maine in 2003 to set up his own business. For the next 15 years, he served as a Lead Instructor for our Furniture Intensive, taught summer Workshops, and co-taught the chair project of the Comprehensive. From 2019-2024 Tim served as Lead Instructor for the Comprehensive.
