Garrett Hack

Garrett Hack is a Fine Woodworking contributor, teacher, and professional furniture maker best known for his modern interpretations of Federal-style furniture. Author of The Handplane Book and Classic Hand Tools , Hack spends much of his time traveling the country teaching at woodworking schools. Hack is known to push design boundaries, and much of his latest work plays with asymmetrical forms and rich materials, such as gold, ivory, and burls. He is also a past chairman of the New Hampshire Furniture Masters Association, one of the leading professional furniture-making groups in the country. When he’s not in the shop or on the road, he’s on his farm in Vermont, tending to his family’s garden, orchard, Belgian workhorse (Jazz), three cows, and small flock of chickens.
