Jeff makes Windsor chairs, period furniture, wood canoes, and boats in his shop in Madison. His woodworking philosophy is to try the old ways first, and only if they don’t work to look for new-fangled ideas. These Luddite ideas extend to his hobbies and other passions, which include airhead BMW motorcycles, telemark skiing, and single-speed mountain biking. He'll also get back to fly fishing when the yuppies move on. See his work at
