Friday Douglas and I traveled around Vermont to check in with a few of our fine furniture makers. Our last stop was at Maple Corner Woodworks to see our friend Robin Chase.
Robin's been crafting beautiful fine wooden furniture for over 25 years and it's always fun to visit his workshop in pastoral Calais, Vermont. Besides seeing all of his works in progress we got to tour the Maple Corner campus and meet the furry sentinels that guard and patrol the grounds (see photo).
It was a very productive meeting and it didn't hurt that it was in a setting of Robin and Annie's herbal gardens and central Vermont's rolling hills.
I see Robin's furniture as a reflection of his own demeanor: elegant, refined and genuine. He's a master at combining authentic Shaker sensibilities with modern, contemporary design. Check out his furniture creations on our website:
