While pursuing a biology major, Andrew Jacobson signed up for an evening woodworking class and never looked back. After earning his BFA in furniture design and construction in 1986, Andrew opened Design in Wood (www.designinwoodinc.com) in Petaluma, Calif., using funds from the sale of his senior project—a quilted cherry writing desk—to outfit the shop. With five craftsmen, Andrew’s business specializes in custom furniture and furniture-grade cabinetry.
