Derek From Malden - Derek Forestier Headshot

I am a 53 year old married father of 4 grown children who makes and creates from his home workshop.

I make unique gifts out of wood, metal, epoxy, or whatever I get my hands on. I have been making with my hands as long as I can remember.

My shop is about 5 miles North of Boston Massachusetts.   I like sharing my life and what I am creating on Instagram, but more recently was on a Netflix series with Jimmy Diresta, Paul Jackman, Pat Lap and Graz. 

When I am not working I like to spend my free time working in my shop.
