Biesanz Woodworks

My bowls and boxes are in the collections of the Queen and Prince of Spain, five US presidents and many other heads of state.

We have a botanical garden and pond, and give a free tour of the woodworking shop and botanical garden.

We make bowls, humidors, jewelry boxes, business card boxes, boxes to put engagement and wedding rings in, cigarette boxes, boxes to put lipstick in, boxes to put the junk that accumulates by your nightstand in, boxes for the Burton-Taylor diamond, and especially boxes to put other boxes in (set of four boxes, the smallest of which is only half an inch long.)

“I design for a timeless, almost Shaker simplicity with great attention to joinery and finish. I use not only traditional geometrical forms and proportions, but also asymmetry, and, in the bowls, natural edges and defects. I want my pieces to feel good in the hand, so all edges are rounded and all hidden surfaces smooth. I don’t look to impose a shape, but to uncover one that reflects and interacts with the natural fractal harmony between heartwood and sapwood. I feel that the people who buy my work are co-creators, and deserve my gratitude for allowing me to do the work I love.” Barry Biesanz
