Fine wood crafts of utility and ornament, handmade in Brooklyn, NY

Ellis Calvin

Growing up as the son of a professional woodworker in Indiana and surrounded by beautiful woodworking, I took much of that influence for granted until I left home.

I eventually became an urban planner in New York, but along the way rediscovered woodworking to be a fulfilling endeavor. Such was my enthusiasm, that throughout grad school I built furniture in my Manhattan apartment during breaks in the academic calendar. These days, I to have a more comfortable shared workshop that allows me to devote much of my spare time to that craft that was so ubiquitous growing up.
