Peter Korn

American, 1951 -

Soon after earning a degree in history from the University of Pennsylvania, Peter Korn turned his energy to furniture making. His work has since been exhibited in galleries and museums around the country. In 1993, noting a lack of training programs for would-be woodworkers, he founded the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine. Peter Korn’s award-winning how-to books translate the teaching style he developed at the Center into a portable, accessible format.
