Chad E. Belknap

My name is Chad E. Belknap, my home is where I was born and raised in Santa Cruz, Ca. Playing in the woods as a child developed my appreciation and admiration of trees as they grow and wood as it decomposes. I am traditionally trained and Licensed as a C6 Finish Carpenter from design to final implimentation. Working in the my field for over 20 years I have gained expertise in all forms of finish carpentry and worked with wood of various types, but my true passion is my art. As an artist, I work with mansanita debre harvested from the earth of local properties. I bring this wood back to life combining rock formations and granite to form an array of indoor and outdoor furniture.
