Seth Weizenecker and Weizwood Furniture

Seth Weizenecker began his career in woodworking with prominent cabinetmaker Aaron Lane, at Lane Woodworking in Birmingham AL, building custom built-ins, kitchens, and fine furniture. During his time there, his love for furniture making began to brew.

In 2008, he pursued his interest by enrolling in the Fine Furniture Making program at North Bennet Street School in Boston MA, designing and building traditional period furniture. After graduating NBSS in 2010, Seth apprenticed with Windsor Chairmaker Peter Galbert in upstate New York. There he learned the art and construction of Windsor chairs. Since then, Seth has studied under, taught with, and worked for prominent makers such as Peter Galbert, Curtis Buchannan, and Brian Boggs.

He was most recently an artist in residence in 2014 at Warren Wilson College, where he designed and built various furniture projects with the Fine Woodworking work-study program. Projects ranged from a set of twelve Windsor chairs with a walnut dining table for the president of the school, to a set of rocking chairs that incorporated hand woven shaker tape from the college’s Fibers department.

He currently maintains his studio,  Weizwood Furniture, alongside his wife, Johanna of Monkfish Bindery, in their home nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC.
