2016: Ronnie Young
Ronnie has built in excess of two hundred pieces of furniture in his distinguished career. Using his engineering background, he frequently draws the plans he builds, faithfully capturing each detail of the original piece. He constructs his own paterae, inlay, fretwork and moldings and often mills and dries the lumber for his projects.
Ronnie has a particular interest in period Tennessee furniture, and a significant number of his pieces are faithful reproductions of historic antiques from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, utilizing the same wide boards as those the old masters used.
Ronnie Young is a master period furniture maker in his own right, yet it is his sincere love for his craft and desire to pass on the legacy that set him apart. Ronnie is passionate concerning period furniture and highly skilled at passing on his knowledge to others.
