Bob Gasperetti -
Gasperetti Furniture Makers
Much of my work is inspired by Shaker and Arts and Crafts furniture as well as modern day masters, Sam Maloof, George Nakashima, and James Krenov, believing that simple, functional furniture crafted with quality materials, integrity and pride will yield a timeless piece that will be passed down from generation to generation. All pieces are made of solid, sustainably harvested hardwoods. I take great pride in the selection of the wood and the time-consuming placement and matching of the grains and color. This cumbersome task of hand selecting often allows me to use boards from the same tree to complete a piece. Traditional joinery is a major component... mortise & tenon, dovetails, sliding dovetails are the norm. No two pieces are alike. While the dimensions may be identical, the characteristics of the wood are clearly distinguishable to the eye making each piece a one-of-a-kind work of art.
I have been making and selling fine furniture since 1979.
