"Bump - Dallas Bump" by Joe York


Dallas Bump, 94, makes chairs at his small woodshop in Bear, Arkansas, using the same techniques that were passed down from his French ancestors more than a century ago. The fourth generation in his family to make chairs, whose frames are made of red oak and seats are woven with white oak strips, Bump has taught his nephew Leon Sutton and his wife, Donna, to carry on the family business.
