handcrafted furniture made in maine
Brian Reid is a fine furniture maker who designs and makes one-of-a-kind, artisanal furniture in the American studio tradition of Sam Maloof or Jere Osgood.
Created at the highest level of craftsmanship, each heirloom quality piece uses traditional dovetail joinery, whether it is a hall table, console or custom cabinet and are completed with hand-rubbed, natural oil finishes. Signature features of Reid's work include Asian or Chinese joinery and intricate hand-pierced or stack-cut, inlaid/parquetry designs.
Reid's furniture can be seen at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, Rockport
Reid splits his time between teaching worldwide or offering individual, private woodworking instruction.
