Mark Osgood is a life-long woodworker. His first major project was building a sailing dingy when he was 13. Growing up around water, he worked in boatyards in Florida, Ohio, and Chicago, doing extensive repairs. He had a long career in the Chicago futures markets and found woodworking to be a helpful stress reliever. His family’s interest in bicycling led him to merge the sport with woodworking. He has been building wooden bicycles since 2013, full time for the last three years. His award-winning work has appeared in art shows and presentations to woodworker guilds and bicycle clubs. Mark won the 2016 Veneer Tech Challenge award and the Excellence in Woodworking award at MASW. Examples of Mark’s bicycles can be seen here.
