Woodworker: Brad Greenwood
When Greenwood builds his rustic-style furniture, he doesn’t try to cover any scars of handwork, nor make a habit of straightening or refining wavy edges. He lets the wood do the talking. “Wood left close to its natural form pays homage to the history of the tree,” he says. “Being perfect is not considered a quality.” Woods in this desk and chair include oak, English and black walnut, elm, sycamore, madrone burl, and eucalyptus. Other materials are copper, rawhide, telegraph wire, and iron. The desk is 32 in. deep by 52 in. wide by 50 in. tall; the chair is 19 in. deep by 23 in. wide by 38 in. tall.
