Watson Woodworks by Eugene Watson

Eugene Watson began Watson Woodworks in 1990 in an old loft just outside of Chinatown in Chicago, Illinois. Prior to wood working, Eugene designed the electronics components for the black boxes in airplanes. Eugene holds a Bachelor of Science in Electronics Technology from Southern Illinois University. Eugene’s interest in woodworking evolved from his childhood and was influenced by his father and grandfather. He chose to pursue woodworking over an electronics career because he is able to express his creativity with his hands and designs innovative pieces in a relatively short period of time.

We are showing three of Eugene’s containers, his Scallop Box, his delicately executed Leaf Box, and, his technically elegant Trapezoid Box.
