A True Craftsman in the Spotlight
A good friend of mine Lee Tigner, owner of Early American Furnishings, sent me a video about a woodworking contest he had recently entered. This was for the 2011 Furniture Design Company furniture contest, in its 18th year. He did not win; however, he received an honorable mention. He is originally from Charleston, SC, and now resides in Dawsonville, Georgia, outside of Atlanta. It amazes me what he is able to create using reclaimed old growth lumber, with the result being hand-made home furnishings. I feel the work he is doing is a true trade that has long been forgotton. I had to share with you folks. This is true craftsmanship at its finest.
