Story

Jeremy began the lifelong pursuit of craftsmanship through woodwork at an early age. From 1996-1999, he and his sister Mischa and their friends Owen and Colter Millehrer, built wooden swords and shields and peddled their wares in a handmade cart as 'Sir Arthur's Armory' at the Shrewsbury Renaissance Fair.

With continuing guidance from his father, Mark Meyer, a craftsman woodworker he learned basic tool maintenance and technique and would assist in installations.

In 2008, Jeremy began working at the University of Oregon in craft center, as a wood shop supervisor. He quickly immersed himself in the shop, performing routine maintenance to tools and equipment, maintaining inventories and facilitating safe practices and consultation to shop users.

In 2009, Jeremy stepped in as an interim woodworking teacher at the Eugene Waldorf School for the 6th and 8th grade classes. He guided students in the completion of independent projects ranging from bowls and spoons, to shaker-style stools and boxes, all without the aid of power tools.

In 2011, Jeremy began pursuing carpentry and woodwork as a full time job, sending him south to Boonville, California where he worked as a builder for the Boonville Hotel. In Boonville he ventured out of the shop--of furniture and cabinetry--and began to accrue skills in structural building. From framing, to concrete, to electric and plumbing all the while balancing function with form.  Here are some of his works.
