Well, maybe some wood is bad – but still has beauty within…
Hank Gilpin has been designing and building fine art furniture for almost 30 years. A native of Connecticut, Gilpin graduated from Boston University with a degree in photojournalism. He served in Vietnam as an army photographer, and returned to the States with the intention to study photography at the Rhode Island School of Design. A random choice of electives led Gilpin to woodworking, and his first teacher (and future mentor) was Tage Frid.  

Okay – now that I am inspired – off to make something with these spalted maple logs – if only I had a woodmiser…
