The Journey

Jesse Shaw is a renowned wood craftsman and furniture designer. He began his career at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, ME in 2005, where he was awarded a fellowship upon graduating that enabled him to hone his woodworking skills under the tutelage of master craftsmen. He attended design school at the Savannah College of Art and Design and was selected to study with notable furniture designers in Milan, Italy. Soon after, Jesse became the lead furniture designer for Currey & Company in Atlanta, GA. His job was designing 150 pieces a year and managing those designs in 15 factories internationally, exposing him to many fascinating manufacturing processes and techniques.  The combination of traditional woodworking and high-tech manufacturing left a powerful impression that he infused into his designs. The Boston-based craftsman has taught woodworking classes at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, Eliot School, and Tufts Museum School. Jesse has been featured in Fine Woodworking, and The Boston Globe and appeared on PBS's TV show Rough Cut Woodworking. His work has been viewed in Museums, Galleries, and Private Collections. Jesse currently makes small-batch designs and builds custom furniture and lighting in his workshop in Foxboro.
