John Allen

John Allen (BCom, MBA) Allen has been working with wood for more than fifty years. He learned his craft in classes from 1969 to 1986. For most of his working life, he has been in strategic planning and governance that he has found enjoyable although he has always felt a deep restlessness. This unease is now quenched through focusing on his passion of working with wood. Allen says, “There is something magical for me in natural materials and the juxtaposition of raw weathering and smooth finishes.”
