Michael Robbins: New Showroom Grand Opening
If you haven’t been noticing, in addition to our tried and true masters of the craft that have been writing for Fine Woodworking for years and even decades, we have a whole new bumper crop of craftsmen who we also are proud to present in our pages.
These makers have a contemporary aesthetic with traditional building skills, but they also offer some new takes, materials, and finishes to their furniture.
One of these woodworkers, Michael Robbins of Philmont, NY, has at least three articles on the way. All are on innovative ways to work wood, with new materials, finishes, and contemporary designs. His first article, “Try a bleached finish” will be coming out in issue #263. Robbins has also been featured in our article “Marriage of Metal and Wood” and the corresponding Masters of the Craft video. If you don’t want to wait for him to grace our pages to see what he’s up to, stop by the opening of his new showroom on Saturday June 24 from 6-9.
