James Krenov, the master instructor of the CR Fine Furniture program (now renamed The Krenov School), had a keen sense of design and an unparalleled sensitivity to his craft.  He created furniture that was intended to surprise and delight all of the senses. His writing continues to influence a global family of woodworkers, and his instruction opened many of our eyes to the joy of working in concert with our tools and materials.  He urged us to refine our senses and to work in ways that are personal and sustainable.
