About Chara Dow
Shop & Materials

Based in Rochester NY, Chara Dow builds artistically unique rustic furniture through the methods taught to her by her
father David Dow. They share a shop and gather materials together while each working on their respective projects.

Chara carries out each step from gathering materials to finishing pieces and delivery them. Her joy lies deep in the respect and appreciation
of local species and the opportunity to work with the trees' natural lines and find new life in wood that so often gets neglected or discarded.

Chara and David both show their work locally and regionally as well as build from commission. Please follow the news
page for updated info on what Chara is working on and upcoming shows or events where her work can be found.
