Oh Oberlin: Sam Muro

I knew Sam Muro as a kid growing up in Oberlin as the younger brother of a classmate. Even in small towns, don’t always know everyone well even if you know people.

What I knew is that he was a kid with a lot of energy. What I did not know was his passion for woodworking even as a kid, an interest which has manifested itself in his creation of the Olde Timber Workshop. Sam reclaims old wood and turns it into new creations ranging from boxes to coffee tables.

I helped Sam relocate his shop recently and was interested in the way he described his process, the extent to which he has invested himself in his new business, and the ways in which it ties to Oberlin.

His product is available on Etsy. More information is available at http://www.oldetimberworkshop.com.
