Abstract

"Focus on the Midcoast" piece on Peter Korn, 52, and his Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, founded in 1992. In less than three years, he has overseen a $2.4 million capital campaign that retired the school's debt and funded the construction of three new buildings. The school also has a $900,000 endowment to create an artist-in-residence program. He turns away hundreds of applicants each year and the school is regarded as one of the best in the country. Only 19 percent of students come from Maine. The school's conversion to non-profit status in 1999 has allowed it to grow rapidly. With details on the school and its philosophy and mention of three other schools on the Maine coast teaching boatbuilding, housebuilding, and photography.
