David Rasmussen

Raised and educated in New England, David was exposed to the Northeast's rich culture of fine furniture making from a young age. Trained by furniture masters Wayne Marcoux and Dan Mosheim, David learned about composition and construction techniques, focusing primarily on mid-century modern, Ming Dynasty, and contemporary American studio furniture.

David's avant-garde approach to developing his style led him to serve as the lead carpenter for Vermont's Forever Young Treehouses, building handicap-accessible projects in Los Angeles, Chicago, Cincinnati and Pennsylvania. David returned to his roots in furniture after a few years of building tree houses, bringing with him the organic understanding that is required for building in the trees. collection

The base of one of the glasses came off and we had to return the pair. Truly unique and beautiful design, perfect for a 5th wedding anniversary, whose traditional gift should be something made of wood.

      Comments about WOODEN WINE GLASSES - SET OF 2:

      The couple seemed to really like receiving these wooden wine glasses because they are so unique and impressive. The stem isn't the best feature, true, but the glasses are so beautiful and cool the stem only detracts a little. I can't say how it is to drink out of them or if they are easy to clean (care instructions were unfortunately not included) but they did not smell as other reviewers mentioned and they are substantial in your hand. They are gorgeous and their uniqueness was greatly admired. I'm glad I bought these and unless the recipients told me they were unpleasant to drink from, I would buy them again to give as a gift.

          Comments about WOODEN WINE GLASSES - SET OF 2:

          Love the wood craftsmanship, but can't drink out of these glasses because they taste terrible. Would like to put some sort of sealer on them so we can actually use them. Do not care for the white stem, doesn't really go with the wood glass and base.
