Craftsmanship Across the Board
Jeff Headley, a fourth-generation cabinetmaker, is continuing the family business, Mack S. Headley and Sons (not to be confused with Mack Headley, Jr., of Colonial Williamsburg), of reproducing pieces of American furniture built before the 1820’s. The Headley’s shop is located outside of Berryville, Virginia, in the historic Shenandoah Valley, 60 miles west of Washington, D.C. Jeff has written for Fine Woodworking, demonstrated on the Woodwright’s Shop with Roy Underhill, and lectured to many organizations and museums, including Colonial Williamsburg. He was hired as an instructor by the government and worked for many divisions of the military and The Park Service. The Headley’s have worked for many museums, such as Mount Vernon, The Carlyle House, Mosbys Tavern, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, The White House and The Park Service and have done work for many heads of state and other dignitaries. He was featured in The Difference Makers, published by The Lost Art Press. Jeff lives with his wife, Susan, in Clarke County, Virginai between Winchester and Berryville, with their four dogs and three cats. Jeff also raises a small herd of Hereford and Angus cows on the family farm.
