Clancy has been working with wood and sharpening hand tools for over 25 years. He began as an apprentice at a Japanese timber frame shop in Northern California, and has moved around a bit since then, picking up skills in furniture building, remodeling, and other trades along the way, before settling in Duluth. You can find him playing music around town and see his custom-built furniture online at saltwood.
