Artist Studio Tour: T. Benjamin Hobbs

August 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Artist Statement: My goal as a craftsman is to create enjoyably functional furniture that enhances its surroundings through artful design and expert craftsmanship.

At Stanton Hill Studios all furniture is hand-crafted and originally designed using traditional construction techniques and quality native hardwoods. Each piece of furniture is hand-crafted by Benjamin Hobbs from his own designs. Benjamin’s hand picks all the wood used in his furniture. He uses many of the woods that are native to his area of New York and Pennsylvania including Maple, Black Walnut, Ash, Cherry, and Oak, as well as some mahogany and curly or figured woods. Refined hand detailing makes each piece of furniture unique.
.
What to Expect: Attendees will see the process from log to furniture by touring the sawmill, drying shed, and studio. I will have a number of completed works on display. I will also demonstrate how I lay out and cut large mortise and tenon joints applicable to furniture and timber frame construction.
