Legendary Hardwood Floors founder Chuck Crispin will be featured in Walt Harrington’s book Acts of Creation: America’s Finest Craftsmen at Work, coming in spring of 2014, published by The Sager Group.

“Acts of Creation reclaims the profound place of the craftsman’s rites and ways of doing and thinking in a consumerist era that puts higher value on profit and branding than it does on dedicated excellence—or the personal exhilaration that comes with achieving it. In creating their fine and useful objects—and explaining to us how and why they do so– these makers of beautiful things offer us not only lessons about craftsmanship, but also lessons about life.
