Cliff Schwab

  

 

Cliff grew up on a dairy farm in a rural area of New Jersey where many of the barns were constructed in the 1800’s.  He was inspired by the quality and longevity of the hand-hewn peg timber frame structures.  He aspires to build furniture that his clients will cherish and will last many lifetimes.  He made his first piece of furniture in 1973 and has worked as an apprentice for cabinetmakers in New Jersey and Chelan, Washington.  He was drawn to the mountains for hiking, climbing, and backcountry skiing and moved to the Methow Valley in 1992.  His favorite materials include Northwest hardwoods as well as local reclaimed pine and fir.  Reclaimed wood provides rich tones and textures.  Many of his pieces are inspired by nature, using live edges on table or bench tops and naturally shaped legs on benches.  If you are interested in commissioning custom-designed woodwork, please contact Cliff.
