Profile of Peter Chen

I remember my first furniture project. It was my first ever shop class in Junior High and the task was to design and build a small desk top bookstand. I designed the bookstand and was very proud when it was done. Only then did I realize that a key element of the book support was done incorrectly. The experience has never left me and my love for furniture design has only grown since. I still make mistakes, but when the pieces come out as imagined or even surpass what I has imagined, the reward is just that much sweeter. Since that Junior High school class, I have been designing and making furniture periodically. 13 years ago, I started a woodworking co-operative and have been actively engaged in furniture making as a creative secondary job to my day job. Having gone through architectural and interior design schools in my college years, my furniture designs tend to be modern and non-traditional. My favorite materials are engineered wood products like, plywood, PSL and LVL. Peter
