Woodworker: J-P VilkmanThis mahogany, oak, and ebony storage bench wears its Krenov influence in the flared legs, frame-and-panel construction, fine details, and carefully selected grain patterns. It is the overall high level of craftsmanship in this piece and in all his work that Vilkman attributes to Krenov’s teaching. Vilkman is an artist-in-residence in the Maine College of Arts Woodworking and Furniture Design program. His most recent work is highly sculptural with complex curves and intricate veneering.
