Mule Studio is owned and operated by Christopher Hawley, or as I like to say, "Me".
Although I am technically the only member of Mule Studio, I work very closely with two other craftsmen, Chilton Mendez and Matt Fulara.
I work out of a shared shop space on the east side of Austin, Texas.
My background in craft started in Western North Carolina, where I had a unique opportunity to learn traditional American furniture making from a handful of incredible craftspeople.
I do not pretend to be a traditional furniture maker, I liberally use contemporary machinery and rarely get out my hand planes, but my background in a more antiquated approach has continued to serve me in how I apply the methods of modern furniture making.
