It is with great sadness that we report that Zane Powell, a generous woodworking teacher and mentor known to many of us, passed away at his home on Tuesday, April 9, 2019.
Zane was born June 21, 1958 in Beech Grove, IN. He was a professional woodworker for over 30 years. In 1987, Zane supervised the residential cabinetry division at Classic Woodworking, specializing in designing and building complicated case work.
In 1992, Zane started his own company that specializes in fine furniture. He was the lead assistant at Marc Adams School of Woodworking when it started in 1992. His work has been featured on the front cover of Builder + Architect magazine and in Indianapolis Monthly and Better Homes and Gardens’ Wood magazine. Beyond his love of woodworking, he also enjoyed fishing and camping, but more than anything else, he enjoyed spending time with his family.
