Michael Fortune studied furniture design and construction in the early 1970s under Donald McKinley at Sheridan College, just outside his home town of Toronto. From the start, Fortune wanted to build fine furniture as efficiently as possible. Frequently building in multiples, he relies heavily on machines and on any number of brilliant jigs, which enable him to reproduce complex shapes quickly and simply.

Why is this man laughing? “Because I’ve been caught using a handplane!”
