Interview with Howard Green on BNN

A few weeks ago a producer from Business News Network (BNN) called asking me to participate in an interview entitled “The Business of Craftmanship”.

The focus of the segment was to discover how people can turn the craft of making things into an actual business, and in addition to me discussing the craft of fine furniture making there were also interviews with custom guitar maker William “Grit” Laskin, and shoemaker-to-the-stars John Fluevog.

The interview took place last Tuesday at a gallery in Toronto called Industrial Storm, and it would be an understatement to say that I was incredibly nervous going in.

Thankfully the show’s host Howard Green was incredibly professional and easy going, and his friendly, relaxed demeanor worked wonders setting me at ease before the interview began.

Howard’s interview with me can be seen at the following link:

  1. Wonderful interview John!

  2. I enjoyed your interview John, and your work is stunningly beautiful. I hope you are right about the “pendulum” swing…..not much evidence of it here in Oregon yet.
