This home library furnishing is done by Kory M. Zussman from Calabasas, California, United States.
Kory Zussman started woodworking as a 13 year-old kid in seventh grade.
In senior high school he participated in “Vocational Wood Shop” which was two hours a day, five days a week.
After senior high school he did not engaged in carpentry work for thirteen years. He completed his education as a Periodontist.
In 1998, he came out of his woodworking retirement by building a triplet cradle for his sister triplets.
Kory Zussman has said about that time:
“ During my formal professional education and the early years of establishing my practice, my spare time had been extremely limited.
As a result, I had denied myself something that I truly loved to do.
At that point, I made the decision to get back into woodworking and to perfect my skills through trial and error as I read, took courses and worked with experts.
I began by acquiring some basic tools that would allow me to build simple pieces.
After a short period of time, I upgraded to more professional quality tools, many of which I still use today. ”
