Woodworker: Tony HaydenHayden worked for years as a building contractor before going to NBSS in 1990. He’s been running a custom woodworking business since returning to his native California. “I’d love to do nothing but high-style 18th- and 19th-century stuff—it’s so powerful—but you don’t get those jobs out here.” The environment at the school, he says, “is not reality—but that’s why it’s so great; I’d love to go back through the program.” His chair, based on one by Samuel Gragg from about 1810, is made of maple, ebony, and figured sycamore. It is 26 in. deep by 19 in. wide by 38 in. tall.
