Todd Clippinger – American Craftsman

I just had the distinct pleasure of visiting with Todd Clippinger, a talented designer and craftsman. I met Todd through one of the woodworking forums . . . well, the best woodworking forum;! A first for me last night, but typical of Todd's many talents and character, he pushed my technical envelope because our visit was via iChat. We had a great visit and he was exactly as I imagined from previous Lumberjocks conversations.

Todd works out of his studio and workshop in Billings, Montana. He specializes in custom fitted and freestanding furniture. Never satisfied with “the ordinary”, his personal goal to give each client exceptional design solutions sets him apart from the crowd. “American Craftsman does not refer to a specific design style,” Todd explains, ”but rather, to an adherence for the principals of quality and integrity in craftsmanship and design.” Todd bears out this sentiment, as he is a frequent contributor to generously sharing his skills and expertise.

Please visit his website for a better look into the remarkable talent of this designer craftsman. And, if you are like me, and get a thrill out of looking into another woodworker’s shop to see the “nitty-gritty” of how things are done, then you will enjoy his personal photo gallery. Although as Todd said, “its like watching paint dry”. Well not for me since both of these links are now on my “check frequently” bookmark section!
