Charles Brock - About Me
As host, executive producer and co-creator of The Highland Woodworker, I am simply adding to the life experiences with which I have been blessed. The show allows me to inspire fine woodworkers by introducing them to the masters of fine woodworking while providing information and resources to enhance their woodworking journey.
I have been building fine furniture since 1979. My work includes reproduction and contemporary tables, chairs, beds and chests. I have crafted over 200 furniture commissions for clients who have become friends. Teaching woodworking combines my experiences as a teacher (30 years public schools) and woodworker and is very satisfying. My current work is greatly inspired by the late Sam Maloof, an icon of modern woodworking.
Besides teaching seven day hands-on sculptured rocker classes in my Columbus, Georgia studio, I have made appearances on the Martha Stewart Show as well as Popular Woodworking's annual Woodworking In America Conference. My sculptured rocker and low back chair DVD, book and pattern bundles have sold all over the world helping woodworkers build their "bucket list" projects. In addition, I work with Newco USA to develop licensed products such as Masterpiece Oil and Wax Finish and sculptured chair kits.
When not working wood or developing the show, I enjoy spending time with my wife (Sheila) and daughters (Keri and Emily) son-in-law (Stephen) and granddaughter (Ava). My hobbies include playing drums in the church orchestra, guitar, harmonica and dobro.
