Who: Robert Krantz
Custom Furniture Maker
Furniture making has been my life’s work. I have created and shaped thousands of pieces over the years. Oftentimes, as I am in the process of
making one piece, an idea for another piece appears. I like to work with Black Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, White Ash, Maple and exotic veneers. I design all of my own pieces and have won numerous awards from art festivals and furniture shows.
My tall clock named “Omen.” The name references the fact that I was building another piece when the idea to make the clock struck me. As the new piece quickly took shape, a smile came to my face. Once it was finished, I was so taken with the result that I went back to look at it on 20 different occasions.
I’ve won three international medals for singing barbershop music.
