Ron Diefenbacher, the founder of Diefenbacher Tools, has spent decades as a woodworker and furniture designer. Below is a gallery of some of his work.
Ron finds inspiration for his designs from many sources, including Shaker, Chinese, and Scandinavian styles. “Sometimes a shape or a single piece of interesting wood spurs the beginning of a piece. Ideas for details come from observing the natural world, the sweeping curves of branches on a tree or the organic shape of a flower. These inspirations often guide me to create furniture with a delicate, sculptural presence. The end result is a piece which expresses a sense of detail and a strong respect for the uniqueness of wood.”
