A graduate of the Baulines Craft Guild and the last apprentice of Art Espenet Carpenter, Sean McKenzie has dedicated a lifetime to fine-tuning his craft. The search has taken him from coast to coast with hundreds of cabinet, furniture, and restoration projects.
At McKenzie Woodworks, Sean designs and builds furniture items ranging from custom kitchen cabinets to artful cribs and dining sets.
For the guitar bar, Sean created a 10-foot long model of an acoustic guitar from sapele, steamed beech, maple, walnut, aluminum, and and steel. The body of the guitar opens to reveal shelving for storage.
In 1999, McKenzie opened McKenzie Cabinetry & Fine Woodworking, specializing in high-end custom cabinetry and furniture for residential and commercial customers in the San Francisco Bay area.
In 2003, he relocated his business to St. Petersburg, where he has meticulously restored his 1920s Arts and Crafts bungalow home. Hundreds of cabinet and furniture projects to his credit, McKenzie now trains apprentices of his own as he designs and builds fine woodworking. He has been featured at WoodworkingNetwork before for a political commentary done in wood.
