About Garrett Hack
Garrett Hack’s earliest memories were of sawing and hammering, so naturally after pursuing civil engineering and architecture at Princeton almost thirty years ago he became a furniture maker. Later study at Boston University’s Program in Artisanry influenced his style of contemporary designs based on classic forms. Internationally known, his work and Federal-inspired brick shop have been featured in The New York Times, Preservation, Home Furniture, and Fine Woodworking, for whom he regularly writes articles about design and craftsmanship.
“It’s all about warmth, detail, shape, usefulness, and impeccable craftsmanship.”
Fundamental to Garrett’s work are hand tools, for the polish of surfaces they cut and the subtle variations possible working by hand and eye rather than machine. He teaches hand tool classes throughout the country and has written The Handplane Book and Classic Hand Tools (Taunton Press, 1997, 1999).
