Joe Ferriso and Jon Anzalone had similar career paths: Both studied painting and took woodworking jobs to make money. Before making woodworking their vocation, Anzalone apprenticed with woodworker Peter Murkett and Ferriso worked in a frame shop (where he built boxes to display Martin Scorsese’s awards). After moving to San Francisco, they made it their day job and opened their studio.
Isn't it funny when you're looking for something and it turns out to be right under your nose? Big thanks to Joy from Oh Joy! for posting about Anzfer Farms, a workshop located not two neighborhoods over from mine, which had so far managed to fly under my radar. Their beautiful home furniture and accessories are all made from reclaimed wood, and are exactly the rustically charming style I've been coveting of late.
