Woodworker: Adrian FerrazzuttiAfter working in the student bench room for nearly 18 years, Krenov decided to move into a small back room at the school. Offering his bench to Ferrazzutti, he said, “It’s a good spot; you should take it.” After this, Ferrazzutti knew he had to make his woodworking special. He says this ebony, holly, and maple vanity has “Jim’s influence all over it.” While the design is unlike anything Krenov made, Ferrazzutti feels it works because of the lessons he learned at the school. Most of the construction methods are CR-taught: The veneers are shopsawn and jointed with a wooden plane; the drawer pocket has “let go,” which means the fit tightens up as the drawer is pulled out. The dovetails are hand cut (pins first), and attention to detail is paramount. In addition to making custom furniture, Ferrazzutti writes about and teaches woodworking.
