1994 - John graduated highschool having taken three years of industrial arts (woodworking). This is where his love of working with wood began. At the age of 17, he decided to pursue woodworking as his career.

2005 - After working in both the furniture and custom cabinet industries, John started developing his own concepts and design. He began making some custom pieces in his free time and it wasn't long before he was able to start branching out on his own in the business world.

2007 - John began renting a small shop just outside of Charm, Ohio. He achieved his dream of having his own business and Studio 4 Designs, ltd was born. Dealing personally with every customer, John takes pride in turning their needs and creative ideas into one-of-a-kind custom, crafted pieces. Today, after fifteen years of industry expierience, John has built pieces large and small using all kinds of wood. He is an innovator, creating unique pieces such as furniture made from reclaimed barn wood. Visit the gallery.
