The Maker

Peter WoodGrowing up, Peter Wood loved performing magic, and loved making things in his family’s woodshop.

Early in his performing career, Peter crafted his own magic props, cases, and tables as a matter of economy.  He went on to receive a technical theatre degree in lighting and scenic design, and became known among his peers as both a builder and performer.

Today, his “Collector of the Impossible” show is Peter Wood’s full-time career. When not entertaining, he enjoys spending time in The Impossible Workshop, building apparatus for folks like you.

Peter understands the demands of a professional entertainer, because he is one.
