ABOUT FURNITUREMAKER LOUIS FRY

I first began building furniture out of a small detached building in my  backyard in the late 1970's. I am not sure where my interest came from since there was nothing in my background that should have led me in this direction. This was in the days before the internet and most of my knowledge was coming from trial and error or books that I checked out of the public library. One day I came across a copy of FINE WOODWORKING MAGAZINE on a news stand and was stunned to learn that there were contemporary makers who could reproduce fine antiques and others who were creating new pieces to their own designs. This realization ignited a passion in me to learn more and take my work to a new level. I soon quit my day job and eventually moved my workshop into a commercial space. As I continued to refine my technical skills and expand my design vocabulary, my clientle base also grew. For more than a decade I displayed my furniture in a well known Austin, Texas showroom.

Today I live and work in the beautiful Texas Hill Country 25 miles west of Austin and create furniture for customers throughout the United States. Some of my clients are collectors who want something specifically made by me. Others are looking for something special and can't find what they want elsewhere. Still others have specific space or functional requirements that manufactured pieces do not address. Whatever the need, I enjoy collaborating with my clients and taking on the technical and design challenges that come with each project. 

My furniture has received recognition in many publications including ARCHTECTURAL DIGEST, TEXAS MONTHLY, URBAN HOME, INTERNATIONAL WOOD, WOODWORKER WEST, CUSTOM WOODWORKING BUSINESS, and the British journal, FURNITURE & CABINETMAKING.
