Who is Tim?

Timothy Clark


Below are my son Ben, wife Mimi, daughter Claire, and myself.


A graduate of Middlebury college in 1985 with a B.A. in Spanish Language and Studio Art, I began making furniture professionally in 1986. The building process is very enjoyable to me and hand-tools are an important part of that. Spoke shaves and hand-planes leave me ankle deep in shavings as I shape chair parts or plane a table top flat. Building cabinets satisfies engineering inklings while building chairs quenches the desire to work sculpturally. My family has always been involved with wood. My father does construction as a hobby and my brother is an architect. I can remember my grandfather tinkering with furniture repair in his tiny shop on my great grandfathers workbench. Today I use that same bench.
I design and build case pieces such as dressers, cabinets and tables as well as Windsor chairs which I have designed to be comfortable, pleasant to look at, enjoyable to build, and only of solid wood. I work alone or some- times with one assistant so each piece that I build gets my full attention. My work is very much influenced by Shaker furniture and traditional building techniques. Hand-cut dovetails, hand-planed table tops, and hand shaped chair parts are examples of this. These and other traditional building techniques make the building process more enjoyable as well as yielding a higher quality finished piece of furniture. I am sure that you'll be pleased with the results.
