While touring exhibits eight years ago, a collection of beautiful tiger Maple furniture eagerly drew my attention. The furniture had that curly maple “pop” that woodworkers desire and value.

His knowledge of history and traditional woodworking skills come into play as he redesigns period pieces for today’s homes. Learn more about Daniel in this episode’s Moment with a Master.
