About Yaakov and Artisan’s Call

My name is Yaakov Bar Am, and I’m proud to say I am a woodworker, a craftsman, an artisan, a blogger, and thankfully employed! I own Furniture by Yaakov and the Maryland Artisan Guild, LLC.

I make custom furniture, turned objects, teach woodworking to children, and still have all my fingers and no have pending lawsuits.

The purpose of this forum is two-fold; to document my work (and thus to entertain and educate the reader) and to promote the arts and craftsmen. Let’s make our voice be heard and bring back the handcrafted/homemade products back to the market place in full force.

If you would like to contribute more than comments please email me at furniturebyyaakov@yahoo.com

    I stumbled across your blog today and really enjoyed it. I saw the episode with Chris Schwarz and I believe the book they were referring to is The Essential Woodworker by Robert Wearing.
