About Chris Ness

I began apprenticing as a carpenter in 1982 at age 15.  In 1987, I attended the Pennsylvania School of Art and Design in Marietta studying Fine Arts.  I later obtained a degree from Kalix Trade School in Philadelphia for certified pipe welding.

After working in residential construction over the course of several years, I then decided to partner with a fellow carpenter in 1990.  Three years later, I struck out on my own and have been a self-employed cabinetmaker ever since.

I currently work and live on a nine acre farmette in northern Lancaster County with my wife, Hayley, our five dogs, one cats, and a menagerie of barnyard animals.
