Mark Eaton has been woodworking since 1989 and began his professional demonstration career in 1990.
He began demonstrating the Shopsmith Mark V, 5-in-1 tool in Ontario, Canada and was noticed by the hosts of the hit TV show, The Router Workshop, Bob and Rick Rosendahl in 1994. Mark trained with the Rosendahls and began demonstrating the jigs and fixtures as seen on the show at all of the Canadian woodworking shows. He became a feature seminar speaker at these shows and grew from there.
Mark took his passion to the next level in 1999 with the launch of The National Router Academy a school dedicated to the teachings of just one tool: the router. The classes grew to include week long, hands-on router classes that enabled students to get comfortable with their routers.
