Meet the Period Craftsman, Freddy Roman

 This week’s blog post is a little different to our usual fare. I had the great pleasure to meet up with Freddy Roman a woodworker whose reputation as a skilled craftsman and communicator is attracting a lot of attention on Instagram under the pseudonym of the Period Craftsman.  I met Freddy in his shop, housed in a terrific old timber built mill in Littleton just outside Boston.  It was the day after a blizzard, a foot of snow on the ground and six foot icicles hanging from the roof edge.  New England in its finest winter clothes for sure and a wind to cut you in half. But inside the shop it was warm and dry with the smell of timber, tools, finishing oils and varnish.
In this illustrated audio interview I was particularly interested to hear what attracts a young man to work with old furniture within his restoration business, whilst still being attracted to modern design albeit with his signature touches. I could summarize it by saying an appreciation for quality and craftsmanship but you judge for yourself by listening to Freddy in his own words.

Be sure to check out some of Freddy’s work at his or follow him on Instagram periodcraftsmen.
