A graduate of Middlebury College in 1985 with a B.A. in Spanish Language and Studio Art, Tim began making furniture professionally in 1986. Tim has taught furniture making and boatbuilding at the Shelburne Craft School as the Resident Woodworker, in his own program – The Wood School, and also at The Wooden Boat School in Maine, Yestermorrow Design/Build, The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum and the Lake Champlain Waldorf School. His work sells nationally and includes work for interior designers and architects as well as private individuals.

The building process is very enjoyable to me and hand-tools are an important part of that. Spoke-shaves and hand-planes leave me ankle deep in shavings as I shape chair parts or plane a tabletop flat. Building cabinets satisfies engineering inklings while building chairs quenches the desire to work sculpturally.

All of my chairs and benches incorporate my trademark “Floating Back” design in which, if there is an arm rail, it passes behind the back spindles. This allows the back to flex with the sitter. My chairs are designed to be beautiful to look at, comfortable, and to last a long, long time. I guarantee my work.
