Laura Zahn is a Los Angeles based furniture maker. She is a graduate of The Krenov School (formerly the fine furniture program at College of the Redwoods) in Northern California. True to the school’s philosophy, Laura aims to combine sensitivity toward her material with personal expression in her work. She strives for fine craftsmanship. Laura uses machines as a starting point in her process, but she focuses on the handwork that makes each piece a unique, heirloom-quality item.
Laura founded Allied Woodshop in 2014. She shares her passion for the craft through teaching at Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, Lie-Nielsen Toolworks, and Cal State Long Beach.
