A unique look, and a pleasure to touch, Knotty Woodpecker furniture ages in a way you’d think was designed by nature itself. The surfaces will harden with use, hold memories of its owner, and tell you about its creator. It’s not machine-shop perfection. Instead, it feels alive, like a part of the family.
Hello, I’m Sean.
I enjoy living simply, and using hand tools in all parts of life. I dig the garden with a shovel and deal with the snow in the same way: with a shovel. Even my espresso machine doesn’t have a power cord, but I have been caught using power tools on the rare occasion.
Being a craftsman gives me a chance to escape the crazy world and leave something useful behind.
