Jerry C. Forshee, a life long DIYer, began his serious furniture building and woodworking efforts with a course at MASW in 1997. After many subsequent courses, he completed his Masters at MASW in 2011. Jerry retired in 2012 after a 44-year career at Indiana University (Bloomington) in a variety of technical and administrative positions. He was recently featured in Psychological Brain Sciences magazine (PBS is an Alumni, Faculty, Staff and student news magazine for Indiana University) for his workmanship as a Master Builder. He has written for both Popular Woodworking and Fine Woodworking magazines. Jerry now enjoys devoting more time to family, woodworking and sharing his passion for woodworking by teaching and assisting instructors at MASW (which he considers his second home). In 2014 Jerry was awarded the John C. Coolidge Memorial Award for outstanding services to MASW. He is a frequent volunteer at MASW in the off-season helping prepare stock, servicing equipment and helping with the big clean up getting ready for the upcoming new MASW season.
