Simplicity is not the goal. It is the by-product of a good idea and modest expectations.

About Jonathan Fraser Regnery

I spent a lot of time in my grandfather’s shop as a kid. The smell of hardwood scraps burning in the woodstove and the gentle humm of the lathe. I still remember the old glass spice jars with all sizes of nails and screws… Now, many years later, I have my own shop. It’s a little bigger but no less comforting… JF Designs is meant to feel like home. I take woodworking personally, whether I’m building cabinet boxes or creating a fine piece of furniture.

As a result of my growing collection of trees, naturally, I started designing things that accompany Bonsai, some traditional and some…not, but, all made out of wood! Enjoy!
