Hi, I'm Mark Ouellette, the owner of Hidden Brook. I grew up in northeast Massachusetts where I still reside. Since 1981 I have owned and operated a successful Auto Repair Business specializing in foreign cars. Also, I have a laser machine where I do custom laser engraving, laser cutting and glass etching. I've always enjoyed working with my hands, whether building my own race car, or as a homeowner making necessary repairs. Working with wood began in 1985 when I bought a shopsmith... a 5-1 saw and wood lathe. I started building fine furniture, discovered the lathe and have been hooked ever since. Now I am turning one or two pieces daily at my shop and still have not tired of the anticipation and excitement each new piece of wood brings. My designs are ever evolving, but the wood is the focal point with the natural beauty of the coloring and grains. The inspiration for my work comes from everywhere, but mainly the wood. No two pieces are alike, which makes everything one of a kind. The creations are intended to be used, which only adds to their character and charm. I welcome custom orders, so if there is something you have in mind, please ask, Thanks for considering Hidden Brook, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the result.
