Growing up in Cashmere, Washington, Austin Campbell was inspired by the outdoors and very early on in life discovered his love for all things handmade. He was encouraged to continue using his talents with art and craft in any way that he could and after graduating from Cashmere High School and discovering the possibilities that the exclusive North Bennet Street School had to offer he knew he had found the opportunity and the environment to make woodworking his life’s passion.
He was accepted into the North Bennet Street School as one of only twelve students in the cabinet and furniture making program and attended from 2009 to 2011. While attending the North Bennet Street School in Boston, Massachusetts he was awarded “Best of Show” in 2010 at the Providence Rhode Island fine furniture show, for his Mahogany corner table, and then in 2011 at the Boston Home Show was awarded the “Viewers Choice Award” and “Best of Show” for his veneered half Demilune table. After completing multiples of his graduation requirements Austin decided to challenge his learning with one of the most difficult constructions in furniture making history, and hand built a serpentine front Bombe chest of drawers.
Austin now lives and works in the Wenatchee Valley where he grew up and is bringing together the tradition of handmade furniture, and custom furniture design. He strives to build unique and memorable pieces that will be treasured by you for a lifetime.
