7 Questions with Peter Follansbee
It's simple really, we ask Peter questions, and he answers them
Peter Follansbee’s woodworking is a window into the furniture shops of 17th century New England, when frame-and-panel construction ruled the day, and the drawbored mortise-and-tenon was the most trusted joint. When he builds, he begins with a log, riving the boards he needs by hand. From there he relies on a handful of planes, a couple chisels, a saw or two, and a small collection of other hand tools. It’s a less complicated way of working that is capable of producing beautiful and sophisticated furniture.
