We stopped in for a short visit after lunch on Monday, Melanie spent at least 20 minutes giving us an impromptu tour of the shop. I really enjoy seeing such craftsmanship and workmanship, in what is becoming something of a lost art.

This is an incredible gallery and workshop. Brian Boggs' furniture demonstrates a huge amount of talent, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. Definitely worth scheduling a tour of the production area. A great place to visit!

We toured Brian's gallery and workshop today. Brian makes some of the most comfortable wooden chairs we have ever sat in. His wife took time to chat with us about the business and their current projects. The craftsmanship is exquisite. Look forward to the day when we are proud owners of one of his fine chairs.

The shop is close to the River Arts District in Asheville North Carolina. Several pieces of furniture are upstairs in the shop. You can sit in the chairs and see stunningly elegant tables.

There is a small gallery onsite of the woodmakers products, which are stunning. We were afforded a tour of the workshop, which was quite excellent. It was impressive to see where the furniture was made, learn some of the process for making these unique pieces, and see some of the equipment that Brian Boggs has designed and made himself to...

Melanie took us through the gallery and the shop. There was so much to learn and appreciate for both the wood crafter and the unexperienced. This is a must see for anyone visiting Asheville.
