Final weekend I requested Superb Woodworking’s Instagram followers
what designer or maker they’d like me to function on the feed
this weekend. A reasonably overwhelming response got here again wanting
to see work from Jere Osgood. Being new to Superb Woodworking I
had but to return throughout his work. Watching this Masters of the
Craft video, I now see why he was requested.

Not solely are Mr. Osgood’s designs chic, however he additionally could possibly be
thought of one of many forefathers of recent studio furnishings.
Designers like Michael Hurwitz and Garrett Hack are sometimes
thought of in the present day’s icons, however their lineage will be traced
immediately again to Osgood.

As at all times, Jon Binzen’s
orginal post
for this slides how says it extra elegantly
than I ever might. In 2012, he wrote:

“Jere Osgood is without doubt one of the greatest craftsmen alive in the present day. And in addition
one of many humblest. He’s been a pathbreaker as a furnishings
designer, but in addition as a technical innovator. On high of all
that, as a instructor he helped nurture a technology of excellent
furnishings makers.”

Osgood’s articles have been integral to Superb Woodworking’s early
success. Jon described “Tapered
Laminations” from issue #14
as revolutionary. I’ll be
making that incredible article accessible free for a few
weeks so a complete new technology can have entry to the
unbelievable method that Osgood delivered to the world.
