Meet our new craftsman, John Thiesen better known as the ‘wood magician‘!
Frustrated with job layoffs, John started his craftsmanship in 1977 building furnishings for his own first apartment.
John is a self-taught cabinetmaker and a juried member of the Arts & Craftsmen Guild located on the historic Roycroft Campus in East Aurora, NY. One of his favorite projects was to replicate a Buffalo Furniture maker Charles Rohlfs chair for the Milwaukee Art Museum which they needed for an exhibit tour. John works a variety of woods including white oak, mahogany, cherry, ash, maple and beech.
John builds Adirondack Lighting, Mission Style Furniture and some One-of-a-Kind pieces.
