Lee Tigner
Lee is a craftsman and founder of Early American Furnishings. He has a degree in history from Francis Marion University in Florence, SC, and has been a woodworker since 1998. His mission is to connect modern lives to our Colonial heritage with handmade, fine home furnishings crafted from reclaimed old-growth lumber. Lee uses a combination of modern equipment and traditional hand tools to produce furniture that feels worn by the hands of successive generations. Reclaimed wood requires special processing skills, which Lee has developed. He feels there is no better way to honor our heritage than through reclamation of this perishable resource, and then to create, by hand, a beautiful and historic piece for future generations.
