“I’ve been hand-making furniture for 44 years. The objects that my grandfather made for me with simple hand tools set me on my quest to learn how the fine furniture of the past was made without power tools. Cutting joints by hand allows an incredible range of design. Curves are no harder than straight lines, odd angles no harder than right. This yields an organic and user-friendly product. For the last six years my son Alec has joined me in the shop, beginning a generational transition that is shaping the work in new ways.”
