GREENFIELD — In his workshop, tucked away on the edge of his five-acre property, Aaron Dickinson works intently in a cloud of sawdust accompanied by the whine of power tools and machinery.

Just steps from his home, he runs Dickinson Woodworking, a family-operated company that produces handmade furniture, kitchenware and accessories.

What began as a hobby when Dickinson was in high school has expanded into a full-time job.

He purchased the property from his parents when they wanted to downsize, and he built the workshop in 2003 with the help of his father, an engineer. He opened his business shortly after.

Dickinson specializes in kitchenware, particularly cutting boards and serving spoons, but produces custom cabinetry
