Portrait of Zachary Dillinger

Zachary Dillinger believes that period reproduction furniture should tell a story of American history, much like the original pieces he studies and reproduces in his timber-frame woodshop. He works only with period-correct hand tools, techniques, and finishes, drawing inspiration from several styles of early furniture, particularly Jacobean (Pilgrim) and William and Mary.

He appreciates the tactile surfaces, simple and functional joinery, and hand-tool marks found in early furniture and works to replicate these characteristics. His goal is to make new, functional furniture that will fit in with a collection of period antiques. Some of the original pieces he reproduces can be found in museums.

Dillinger’s work has been featured at furniture and art shows on the East Coast and on numerous period decorative arts websites. He is a contributor to Popular Woodworking Magazine and a frequent demonstrator for the Society of American Period Furniture Makers.
