R. Scaffe Cabinetmaker
I began woodworking as a hobby while attending College in the mid to late 1970's I opened my first shop in the basement of a turn of the century building "the Cigar Factory" in Charleston SC where I was born and raised.
In 1998 I relocated to the mountians of East Tennessee in the town of Kingsport.
I have chosen to work alone. From the selection of the rough lumber, carving of a design, the complex joinery of a case to the shaping of a simple peg, nothing is delegated to others.
Unlike the mass produced furniture of this day and age, I design and build pieces that can proudly be passed down through generations. As well as commissioned, work I normally build several pieces each year I in which I have a personal interest. When complete, they are available for sale on a first come first serve basis.
I am also available for instruction in woodworking techniques and small projects class such as the Shaker “Saturday Table”.
