The Chairman

Website

Cameron, NC - Bill Daigle makes handcrafted Adirondack furniture out of his small woodworking shop.  When he was younger, Bill lived and worked with the late Dan Graham (a longtime market member and founder of Graham Family Farm) where he learned a great deal about woodworking. When they considered going into business together, Mr. Graham instead provided Bill with a plan for a chair so that Bill could pursue his own direction. Bill has done it as “The Chairman.” For his furniture, he uses primarily Western Red Cedar. Occasionally he still gets Eastern Red Cedar from Mr. Graham’s mill, continuing their connection. 

The Chairman sells at the Saturday Market.

Production Practices: Bill handcrafts his products using wood from a local sawmill.
