When in the shop, Jonathan is always looking to blend form and function. "I love making something so useable, that even if it looks too nice to use, you'll end up using it anyway."
More than ever it's important to buy smartly, and that generally means buying local. Jonathan goes out of his way to source materials from countries and manufacturers that share a concern for ecological and economical stability.
The woods Jonathan uses are primarily N. American and responsibly-sourced. His finishing products are made in Germany, cabinet and door hardware come from the USA, Austria, and Italy, and he's equally choosy about where his tools come from.
