RARE HAND CRAFTED MODERN FURNITURE FOR THE HOME
Mission: To craft rare and exquisite furniture that honors the sculptural properties of the earth’s most beautiful hardwoods. To obsess over detail, beauty and quality while remaining firmly rooted in the ancient craft of joinery.
WELCOME TO JONATHAN OTTER- FURNITURE MAKER
I am pleased to offer you a glimpse into my world of making. After 12 years of producing some of the finest hand made modern furniture this region has to offer, I still work alone, crafting between 10 and 15 pieces each year. Being independent is not a liability, but rather a strength. Unencumbered by the demand for growth I am free to push the boundaries of what it means to be a woodworker.
