A 2010 graduate of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, Benjamin brings a liberal arts background in music, philosophy, biology, and religion to the field of furniture making.  Troubled by a landfill economy, he turned the trade he knew-- woodworking-- to create and restore heirloom pieces for the 21st century.


The Perseverance Works is the result of that commitment to quality, conservation, and ultimately to enduring beauty.  With every project he promises:


                            Quantum in me Fuit

                       "Everything that was in me."
