"Wood is an endlessly fascinating material for me; each board is a unique canvas. Combining just the right pieces of wood in well-designed furniture that functions properly is what concerns most of my work. I've had a continuing passion for several furniture forms: three-legged stools, tables, benches and rocking chairs."
Working alone in his studio in the mountains of Western North Carolina, David W. Scott designs and builds fine wood furniture to live with and love. The woods he uses are a combination of fine local hardwoods and woods from around the world.
All parts for the three-legged stools, seat, legs and rungs, are turned on the wood lathe; carved, sanded and polished. In other furniture, wood turning is combined with bent lamination, joinery and fine woodworking techniques.
After falling in love with woodworking at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont, David W. Scott continued his training in the two year Professional Crafts Program at Haywood Community College in Clyde, NC. This was enough to get him started, and the ensuing years as a fine furniture-maker added infinitely to his knowledge of wood.
