In Pursuit of Perfection
Crafting furniture is about much more than the finished product for a man like Mark Lester. Each piece is a unique experience, a chance for personal expression, and a labour of love. Take the dream of his “ultimate workbench” for example, which Mark had cultivated in his mind since childhood. A lifetime of cognitive design came to fruition through 180 hours of labour as Mark manipulated his favourite pieces of native wood using his two hands and a collection of the finest American-engineered tools from Lie-Nielson. 17 different types of wood, each with a background that Mark is more than willing to share.
