In May 2009, Chris Becksvoort was honored with the Master Craft Artist Award, given by the Maine Crafts Association … “In recognition of his excellent craftsmanship, inspired design, singular voice, and contributions to the field of craft.”
Spend A Year Working With Chris Becksvoort.
At a woodworking seminar recently, I was asked if I’d ever consider taking an apprentice. After over 30 years of working alone, that’s a tough question. I value my privacy, I enjoy the music of my choice, and I appreciate leaving a set up on a machine and having it there when I return. Most of all, love the solitude.
So, on the spur of the moment, I replied, half in jest, “Sure, if you build me a new shop, you can spend a year working with me.” No takers yet, but the offer stands.
