A native Salt Laker, Chris Gochnour started his woodworking career in his grandpa’s basement, where he built custom skateboards to sell to local board shops. Gochnour eventually found himself living in London, where he developed a passion for woodworking and fine furniture design. After earning an English literature degree, he returned to woodworking and began building handcrafted furniture. That venture has turned into a 30-year career. He also teaches woodworking at Salt Lake Community College, Marc Adams School of Woodworking, and at guilds around the country as well as in his studio. Married with two children and a yellow Labrador, his favorite pastimes are skiing in the nearby Wasatch Mountains, cycling along a river parkway, and building and using custom long boards.
