To some, a chair is just something to sit on. To Gregg Pennington, it's a life's work. Greg found his calling when he first learned to make chairs by hand. He's still doing that beautifully, and is teaching others who want to share his pleasure in his art. Rob Wilds visited Greg Pennington at his Hendersonville workshop to meet this artist who loves to make chairs the old-fashioned way.
