Hi, I am Massi Fantucci

Massi Fantucci lives and works in the Napa Valley, surrounded by vineyard covered hills that remind him of his Tuscan homeland.

After high school, he studied Furniture Design and Restoration at the Instituto Industriale Leonardo Da Vinci and, while in school, worked as an artisan, making metal jewelry and accessories.
When he came to the United States in 1994, Massi worked as a chef until his first son was born in 2003 when his artistic focus shifted 100% to Handcrafted Woodworks. To this new medium, Massi brought more than just his education and experience...he also brought a European sense of time and history.

Using traditional woodworking and finishing methods, he builds his pieces with the strength and quality needed to last for generations, so that each piece can become a family heirloom. Massi has been restoring and building furniture for residents of
