Vincent Chicone is a third generation woodworker—he grew up in a cabinetshop, developing his craft under the guidance of his father and grandfather, both finish carpenters. He creates bench-made Windsors in a range of period designs with traditional colonial wood working tools as well as reproduction historic furniture, custom cabinetry, and architectural millwork. His shop, Chicone Cabinetmakers, is nestled in the heart of the Finger Lakes—an area that teems with native hardwoods. Vincent takes advantage of this local resource by producing his chairs and benches out of regionally harvested trees. Vincent is interested in the development of regional furniture forms and the unique style signatures of historic cabinetmakers. He brings his personal interest in historic design, development, and process to all of his projects.
