Bucktown Built

Chicago, IL

"Functional Art"
My passion for woodworking dates back to when I was a young man with far more friends getting married than money. The best man in more weddings than I can count, I bought a secondhand lathe and taught myself to make pens and bowls as wedding gifts.

I launched Bucktown Built, named for the Chicago neighborhood where I live with my wife, Tamara, and our dogs Betty and Gidget…and where crafted my first commissioned table on a balcony underneath the Blue Line El Train.

I’ve since been fortunate enough to establish a dedicated workshop in a building full of fellow local artisans, build relationships with trustworthy exotic hardwood suppliers from the US Pacific Northwest to Costa Rica and work with top interior designers and local businesses in the Midwest.

While Bucktown Built grows and evolves, one very important thing does not: I continue to work directly and personally with each client to conceive the custom furniture of their dreams.
