Maker of Shaker-inspired and early American furniture. All pieces are meticulously crafted using the finest selection of hardwoods including cherry, maple and oak. In addition, I employ many of the same techniques and tools used by master craftsmen of the 18th and 19th centuries.


David A. Spero has been building furniture for 24 years, the first 14 years as a hobbyist and the last 10 years as a professional. David began his interest in making furniture while in graduate school in 1976. The transition from hobbyist to professional took several unusual detours. He received a doctoral degree in biomedical sciences in 1981 and served as a faculty member at two Universities. Later, he founded and ran an environmental testing laboratory for 8 years in Louisville, KY. It was during this time that he developed a passion for making early American Furniture and began dreaming of becoming a full-time furniture maker in rural Vermont. In 1995, he moved his family to Vermont and began building his post and beam house and shop.
