Daithi O'beag is the Studio Director at Jeff Martin Joinery. You can also call him Dave. Raised in Ireland, he learned traditional stone carving from his father. After studying Industrial Design, he has pursued a variety of work in different craft based industries, before landing at our studio. Dave is the head of technology and process refinement at our practice. He has an uncanny ability to work and imagine in stone, wood, bronze, clay, glass, and the digital realm. Working alongside Jeff, Dave is tasked with order fabrication, HR, cookie runs, fabrication systems innovations, design refinement, and shop improvements. Daithi is a fast swimmer. And a very fast runner.
When you receive a piece with Dave's thumbprint carved into the bottom of the work, it is emblematic of the best handmade furniture you can buy.
Jeff Martin is Creative Director of the practice. Interested in surface, manipulation of materials, research, and fabrication processes. Jeff has maintained a studio practice for a decade. Now Jeff focuses primarily on new design work, prototypes, and the development of systems to produce the work. Jeff is a faster swimmer than Dave. But not as good at running.
Floaters. We have had more than a few exceptional people work for us. Published writers, artists, former Olympians, sculptors, and ski bums. And when we are busy very often you will see them in our shop working with one of our lead fabricators. Most of them are OK at swimming, but not quite as good as Dave or Jeff.
