WHO IS CHRIS
Cabinetmaker, furniture designer, graduate of College of the Redwoods under James Krenov. Operates Capital Joinery LLC in Madison WI.
Chris began building furniture after graduating from UW Madison with a wildlife ecology major. He was hired at a local Madison family business making custom roll-top desks. Moving on, he worked at multiple architectural millwork companies and then on his own, getting a better understanding of materials, techniques, and attention involved in developing something of quality.
In 2001, he applied and was accepted to the College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking Program in California, where Chris and his fellow students were fortunate enough to be the last class taught by James Krenov. He received the James Krenov scholarship for the furniture he created while at school and had a rocking chair published in Fine Woodworking magazine.
Capital Joinery LLC expanded into a new shop (3223 Burke Ave, Madison WI) in summer of 2015.
