Tim Angell grew up interested in the craft of woodworking. As a teenager he became interested in stringed instruments. With little woodworking opportunities in New Jersey, Tom and his wife moved to Connecticut where Tim found a job at Ovations Guitar. He worked his way through many departments learning all of the stages of guitar building and participating in design and general modifications. Fascinated with computers and databases he kept track of serial numbers and statistics of the assembly and output of the shop. The parent company, Kaman, was impressed with his research and offered him a job at the headquarters up the road in Bloomfield. Over the last several years Tim has been in charge of special projects for the company, which he enjoys, as he says, just as much as woodworking!
