I have been a professional woodworker for over 31 years and I still like to make sawdust. My brother Dan and I are the owners of Zongkers Custom Furniture and have been in business for over 26 years. www.zongkers.com
What I enjoy most is making a piece of furniture from the beginning design stages all the way through to the very last finishing stage. When I design and build a piece of furniture my in tension’s are for the piece of furniture to last 100 years or more.
I love adding the marquetry and carving to furniture and not making it too gaudy by trying to make it as clean as possible. I have dedicated many hours on research and education to achieve the best method and outcome on all my projects. I believe in the importance of preserving the old methods of woodworking.
I have spent a lot of time specializing in carving, marquetry and engineering on AutoCAD. I have engineered over 4,000 different pieces of custom furniture. I have also studied Violin and guitar making, finishing, turning, joinery, and most all aspects of woodworking. I have spent many years on learning techniques in all aspects of woodworking and have taken what I have learned to develop my own methods to achieve the best outcome.
I currently teach box making, carving, marquetry, inlay edge banding and hand cut dovetail classes in my home town. It is very popular with both professional and hobbyist woodworkers. I enjoy sharing what I have learned with each of them.
