From the Personal Collection of Bob Timberlake, Lexington, North Carolina

Mr. Craver began wood working as a young man, hiring family as his assistants in the 1930s. His first big break came from an order of mahogany dining chairs by Elizabeth Dole. Craver noted that several young boys would come in his shop inquiring about the process of furniture making and he would always stop and show them how it was done, one of these young boys was Bob Timberlake, who would take his knowledge and inspiration to later form the Timberlake line of furniture.

Old surface wear, staining and scratches from use; overall good usable condition.
