Chattanooga Furniture Maker David Crewe Builds Steampunk Speakers

David Crewe was trained as a mechanical engineer. He spent over a decade building and installing boilers until he got bored with it. At that point he went back to the small woodworking shop he and his father spent 20 years building on a scrap of land on Signal Mountain. He makes furniture in the same Queen Anne style his dad adored, but his passion is for designing and building high end loudspeakers. In this interview, David Crewe explains how he builds the fanciful speakers he sells in the Area 61 Art gallery on Main Street.
