Bjorn Rettig is a MASW Master and is working on the Michael Fortune Fellowship. He has been making sawdust for 20 years but has been using computers for 40. Even though initially woodworking was his way to get away from computers, it was only a matter of time until a “computer numeric control” (CNC) became part of his woodworking repertoire. Bjorn runs his own studio in Germany in which he works on 3D forms in a combination of CNC and hand tool woodworking. Bjorn is also a member of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard where he teaches computer science classes.

A special note about our photos:

We have taken HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of photos over the years of our students, instructors, and staff — during classes, after classes, and at various gatherings. Throughout this brochure and on our website, you will see many photos that were taken prior to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Images of people without masks or not practicing social distancing were taken before the pandemic and before the safety practices were implemented. Please rest assured, we follow all of the safety precautions and guidelines mandated by our local and state health officials. Community means everything to us —we aim to provide a safe environment for all who teach and learn at MASW. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our practices, or would like more detailed information about the school’s health and safety guidelines, please do not hesitate to call or email us!
