About the Book
Norman Pirollo offers a unique form of contemporary styled furniture incorporating contemporary and modern elements. As designer, I acquired an education from contemporary artisans as well as insight into both the visual and decorative arts. Through an equal amount of patience, attention to detail and a keen sense of design, I create striking studio furniture incorporating unique, contemporary designs. Applying accumulated skills and expertise, I pursue the design process from preliminary sketches to CAD drawings to making. I author woodworking courses and tutorials at WoodSkills. The woodworking courses are developed to distribute my extensive knowledge and expertise. I have authored woodworking books, “Start Your Own Woodworking Business”, “From Hi-Tech to Lo-Tech: A Woodworker’s Journey” and “The Wood Artist: Creating Art Through Wood“, available through WoodSkills. A design + build blog is maintained at The Refined Edge. I operate a furniture design + build studio in Ottawa, Ont.
