About

My name is Robert Chapman and my dream is to become a master furniture woodworker. The inspiration for my woodworking has come from my grandfather who was my mentor and loved family member. His knowledge of craftsmanship along with my creativity has molded me into what I am today. My passion is to create beautiful rustic furniture from recycled & reclaimed wood that would otherwise be thrown away. I see the beauty in what others would think to throw away or call "trash." During the week I drive around collecting pallets, old furniture, torn up deck wood or anything that looked like throw away material and give them life! The reclaimed/ recycled wood that I collect are the bones, joints & body of my projects. Once I have the body measured, crafted and put together I get to bring the piece together with life. When I say life, I am referring to the finish work, anything from sanding, molding, choosing from hundreds of different colors of stain, the style of polyurethane used and the joy of seeing one more original piece of art created. Not one single piece of furniture is alike, every piece is unique and created with passion!

Risks and challenges

The risk/ challenges I have had are finding the perfect types of wood to use for each project. I have to go out and find the wood used for the furniture I make and this becomes a problem when I can't find the wood needed. I spend multiple days out and about looking for spots people dump wood or call demolition companies that have throw away material I can pick up.
