February 2018 Meeting – Seth Rolland

Tuesday, February 6th at 7pm

Our February program will feature furniture maker Seth Rolland. Seth has been making custom furniture for 25 years, first in Taos, New Mexico and now in Port Townsend WA. He says “I enjoy pushing the limits of my materials and finding way to make furniture that is clean-lined, animated, intriguing and fun to live with”.

Seth has taught at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking and his pieces have been displayed in galleries throughout the country. His sunburst table was featured on the How They Did It article of Fine Woodworking in Aug 2010. This backpage article was titled A Slice of Genius.

Seth will be presenting slides showing the progression of his work, discussing early influences and how he got into woodworking, finding inspiration and translating that into designs. He’ll detail his ideas for developing designs from idea to completion. He may also discuss his workshop, working efficiently, and marketing and the business side of woodworking.
