Elia Bizzarri
Elia Bizzarri is a professional chairmaker, who also hand-crafts chairmaking tools and turned parts for chairmakers. Trained under Curtis Buchanan as his sole apprentice, Elia has also worked with John Alexander, Drew Langsner, and the carpenters at Colonial Williamsburg. An early interest in history and hand tools led to his profession in woodworking. With few power tools, he enjoys a quiet workshop in Pittsboro, NC.
