A Furniture Maker 6000 Years In The Making

Ejler Hjorth-Westh was my favorite presenter from Woodworking in America 2013. This month, he's profiled by Linda Hock in the Hock Tools Newsletter.

If you're not familiar with Ejler, he's a Danish furniture and boat building who has called Northern California his home since the early 1980's. Ejler's take on woodworking (and specifically chair design) mixes a grasp of the history, a love of the craft and an enjoyment that I found conveyed more joy and satisfaction and just about any instructor I've had.


Be sure to check out Linda's extended interview with Ejler. You can read it in its entirety on the Hock Tools site here.
