Jamie Yocono
With a degree in Furniture Design and as a Journeyman carpenter, Jamie Yocono's passion for woodworking has spanned over 30 years. She previously taught for the University of Akron, and opened Wood It Is! in Las Vegas to fill a void in the woodworking community here.

Wood It Is! is a woodshop/art studio where students can learn everything from tool basics to in-depth furniture making. Jamie also started the Sin City Woodworkers, a diverse group of woodworkers who meet each month (at the woodshop) to discuss all things wood related. Jamie's blog "Let's Talk Wood" was recently named one of the top twenty woodworking blogs on the web.
