Patrick Brennan developed a passion for learning and working with his hands at a young age. Fascinated by his families restoration of their 1800’s farmhouse in upstate New York, he began to develop an interest in building and woodworking. As a graduate student studying geology, he sought out a hobby that would satisfy his desire to work more actively with his hands. Out of a necessity to minimize dust and noise while living in a small apartment, he discovered hand tool woodworking. As Patrick further explored traditional woodworking, he quickly fell in love with using the tools and techniques of the past. He has since moved to Houston, Texas where he continues to share his woodworking journey through his blog, The Tekton Guild.
