Jim Krenov

J Krenov, cabinetmaker, has inspired a generation of woodworkers with his unique style that blends proportion, symmetry, subtle lines and wood grains in deceivingly simple designs.

A recognized furniture maker in Sweden, he moved to Northern California in 1981, where he created and led the College of the Redwoods’ Fine Woodworking School. In his twenty years with the school he taught hundreds of eager students from around the world while continuing to build his own fine furniture. He retired from the college in 2002, but is still actively creating cabinets in his home woodshop.
