Woodworker: David FinckFinck also watched closely as Krenov pursued his own work. “Jim’s ability to convey the emotional content of his approach to the craft to a group of students was mesmerizing,” Finck says. This red-oak lamp is made with the care and attention Finck learned at the school. All the wood surfaces were planed with a Krenov-type plane, and harsh edges were made “friendly” (as Krenov would say). Finck has his own studio, where he gives woodworking instruction and builds one-of-a-kind furniture, lighting, and guitars. He also makes plane irons and wrote Making and Mastering Wood Planes (Sterling Publishing Co., 2000), which has a foreword by Krenov.
