Edward Wohl: 45 years a craftsman and still going

RIDGEWAY, WISC. – From his hilltop shop and home in rural Wisconsin, Edward Wohl looks back on more than four decades of craftsmanship, building original fine furniture and designer cutting boards out of highly figured hardwoods such as bird’s eye maple. And he’s not done yet. “I have been at my craft for 45 years and don’t see stopping any time soon,” he said. “In fact, my son Jonathan will be moving back to Wisconsin this coming June and joining the business.”

EPA’s regulation addressing formaldehyde emissions in composite panels is very consistent with CARB. While the regulation includes a narrow group of veneered panels, it does not include other veneer types, papers or other decorative overlays commonly used with composite wood.
