JAMES (RAY) JOURNIGAN SR has been reproducing some of America’s finest period reproduction furniture for private collectors for over 35 years. The quality of his work has gained him recognition as one of the country’s top craftsmen by Early American Life magazine. Ray has traveled across the country presenting programs on period furniture making to woodworking guilds, museums, and antique groups alike. Ray is a long standing member of the Society of American Period Furniture Makers (SAPFM) who awarded him their prestigious “Cartouche Award” for excellence and life time achievement in the field of period furniture reproductions. When he is not in the shop or classroom you can most likely find him on the lake searching for the next Virginia State record Largemouth Bass!
