Name: Jake Shapiro (@jakexshapiro)
Age: 28 
Title: Woodworker, Wishbone Woodworking 
Jeans: ST-200x

I hail from…
Long Island, New York 

I’m currently working on…
A kitchen in a beautiful Carroll Gardens brownstone. A headboard for a friend. My never ending '86 Sportster build.

My favorite meal is…
Breakfast! Eggs, bacon, pancakes, toast, French toast, bagels, hash browns, coffee, OJ, bloody marys, waffle cereal. All the breakfast food, all the time.

I collect…
Records. It's a real problem. 

The last thing I read was…
"Where I'm Calling From" by Raymond Carver.

Presently, I’m listening to…
Melvins, Self Defense Family, Uncle Acid, Thou, Integrity

The best way to unwind is…
A hot shower and a good record. 

The last piece of advice given to me was…
"There are two kinds of things. The things you can control and the things you can't. Focus your energy on the things you can control and learn to accept the things you can't."

One place I would love to visit is…
Japan. Hoping to make it out there sooner than later.

In 20 years I hope to be…
Living in the Hudson Valley somewhere with a shop of my own. Older and wiser and building better furniture and faster bikes.
