Jan Bouterse
Jan was born and educated in the Netherlands where he was raised in a family that emphasized both an “old world” work ethic as well as a thoroughly modern entrepreneurial spirit. He came to the U.S., married, and soon began Hardwood Designs, a high quality cabinet shop in Hillsborough NC. His European craftsman’s eye for detail, his inquisitive instinct for problem solving, and his unceasing demand for quality soon drove his company to thrive. After selling his company he worked as a quality certification inspector for the Architectural Woodwork Institute. He now spends much of his time in his shop, building furniture and working at his lathe. His hobbies are fly fishing, sailing and (no surprise here) woodworking.
