Hank Gilpin is a woodworker who shares my values. I’m impressed by his knowledge of american woods. He has choosen or it has choosen him to work with common woods, ie what is available, vs. exotic woods. Mr. Gilpin has a subltle style that draws the eye into the piece he makes. What i found interesting about this man is his versitility, like many of the Lumberjocks. found out that he designed and built with engineering support a tunnel! Under a road for a golf course! I noticed that a desk he built has a similar structure. LOL
Checked Wikipedia and found no entry for Mr. Gilpin Other modern/contemporaries are listed. But it is intweresting that furniture that is both functional and art is overlooked?
Has anyone seen Wendy Maruyama’s work? Like to hear what you think and why. To me it has the subtlty of a Krenovian piece.
There are many lumberjocks who admire some master woodworker. Would like your direction.
Hadn’t written in awhile so I thought I’d put in a few words, albiet not thought out. LOL
