Amarante Vasquez is owner and operator of Vasquez Enterprises. Raised in New Mexico, he received a B.S. degree from Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. He lived in Utah for several years before returning to New Mexico, and has recently moved back to Utah.
Amarante inherited his passion for woodworking from his grandfather, a Master Carpenter who specialized in hand-built and hand-carved wooden furniture of the Southwest. After years of enjoying wood as a hobby, Amarante turned his passion for carpentry into a full time enterprise, opening his own woodworking shop in Peñasco, New Mexico. He worked on numerous projects in the Taos, Santa Fe, and Mora areas, including new construction, remodels, and custom wood furniture. Among his specialties was handcrafting doors and cabinets to replace broken or missing ones in old adobe homes – matching styles, woods, stains, and textures to replicate the original pieces.
