A Great Resource

Since the articles in Fine Woodworking came out, I've gotten lots of inquiries about the butternut and where to get it. We in the chairmaking community are lucky to have Nick Cicchinelli thinking about our needs and working to help us out. I've bought lots of seat stock from Nick, and so has Curtis, Greg, Elia and the list goes on. He bought the Timbersmith Company from Mike Coseo about 5 years back and I have been rooting for him ever since. It's rare for someone to tune into the special needs of chairmakers and keeping his business moving forward serves us all.

It is a real pleasure to work with the chairmaking community. The knowledge sharing and general good will towards others is inspiring. Thank you very much, Peter, for your support and vote of confidence. It means an immense amount to me. I hope that you are content and comfortable in your new surroundings and that Sue's new endeavour is everything she wants it to be. Thank you Greg for your kind words as well. Sincerely, Nicholas Cicchinelli
