CHAPTER I

Who Huttonio

  Born in Longview, Washington. Grew up in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

  George Brooks-Hutton is how I'm known to family and friends. Huttonio Brooks being a nick-name.

  Learned most of my woodworking skills from a very patient father and a very exacting grandfather. I used to wallop my father's fingers as a child. He'd hold the chisel handle or nail head and get me to practice my swing. When I'd miss, he'd cuss and say "Hit it again, ...and get it right this time...I can't keep doing this forever."
  I had the added fortune of briefly studying furniture design with Seth Stem and Tage Frid at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence.
