Remembering James Krenov

On September 9, 2009 James Krenov left us. However, he left us with a lot as we pay tribute. It will take a lot to replace this woodworker because after all when one hears James Krenov name mentioned one immediately thinks of fine woodworking, wooden planes, and woodworking books. Woodworkers respect this special craftsman and teacher who was passionate about building a cabinet as well as his other wood projects.

Perhaps in the case of James and the void that is left due to his passing we need to think in terms of his influence on so many other woodworkers, cabinetmakers, and furniture makers. It could be that the total aggregate of those he influenced will be the measure of this man. If indeed this is the case then it could be said that James’ work still continues today. How fortunate we are that he lived during our lifetimes.

“It’s not that I had a message that was outstanding or unique or anything like that. I just expressed the feelings that a great number of people had … ‘Live the life that you want to live. Don’t be unhappy in your work.'” …James Krenov
