Applewoods Woodworking Studio and Gallery

David and Michelle Holzapfel

Live Edge Furniture and Vessels


David and Michelle Holzapfel established their Marlboro studio and gallery, Applewoods, in 1976 on VT Route 9 in the southern Green Mountains. They use Vermont’s spalted and burled hardwoods to make one-of-a-kind, handmade/ handcarved furniture and vessels.

I respond to the dynamic grain patterns of native hardwood burls. My forms are rendered as vessels. Their function is to project their personalities into the viewer’s space. — Michelle

Burls, branches, hollow logs, and natural-edged boards… the challenge is to make sense of them within the parameters of functional furniture: material-based design. — David

Their work has been acquired by museums, businesses and homes throughout North America.
