Whit McLeod’s cool furniture


As some of you may know, I work for Mohawk Industries, and I sell flooring to retailers. I was visiting a flooring dealer today who also sells furniture and while waiting to see the buyer, I started flipping through a furniture industry magazine. I came across an article featuring furniture by Whit McLeod and I was really impressed by his work. See the link to his site here.

I know very little about Whit except he makes furniture that has a visual hook I find to be really cool. Something that helps set Whit apart from many furniture makers is that he uses reclaimed wood for his projects. He also has a nice design eye and commands an impressive price for his work: his contemporary adaptation of the Morris Chair sells for $4,200 a copy. I want to make furniture like that!

Have any of you seen his work?

During the week, I sell carpet and rugs for The Dixie Group. Weekends, you'll find me in my basement workshop making furniture.

  1. Great Stuff. Welcome to the West Coast. I would bet that 60% of every maker out here uses extensive use of recycled wood. It's the way we roll out here on the hippy coast.

    His website is great too. I learned more about the work of a cooper on his page than I could imagine.

    Thanks for sharing the inspiration. You can, BTW make that kind of furniture. 🙂

  2. I would do that kind of wokr but I have good excuses. You know I don't have time? I don't have the right tools? and finally I ahve a lot of can'ts.

    Beautiful work like what I saw.

  3. Whit's work is inspiring and tends to get me thinking about how I design projects. Also it furthers my thinking about wood options.
