Peter Follansbee, joiner

I make reproductions of 17th-century joined furniture; boxes, chests, chairs, tables & more. My work follows techniques and methods from the period, all work is done exclusively with hand-tools. Oak is the primary timber used,  pine, maple and ash are also used to a lesser degree. There are examples on the pages here, I’d also be glad to answer questions regarding forms not shown.

  1. Hi Mr. Follensbee, I am having trouble finding resources on ‘starting-out;’ I haven’t much experience using true hand-tools, exclusively and would like to learn. Would you be able to point me in a direction? Much thanks, and your work speaks for itself.

  2. Dear Mr Follansbee,
    I was fortunate to see you as a guest of Saint Roy on the Woodwrights shop.
    Was wondering if there was more video of your work and found this wonderful website. Wow, I cannot decide on whether the books or DVDs, or both.

  3. Dear Sir; I have greatly enjoyed your spoon carving. On the wood species, is it safe to use lilac wood? I will be pruning back a grandfather lilac in the spring with 3.5 in diam. stock. The spoons would be used in the kitchen.
