Bart Tenore

A citizen of Pine Plains for sixty-three years, BART TENORE's fascination with Stissing Mountain began as "a six-year-old boy in the woods with a jack knife" and grows deeper with each new experience. Though his career as a hardwood inspector has taken him all over the world; it is his love for nature"s imperfections that truly stop him in his tracks. Burls, knots, wormholes, irregular growth patterns and other defects have been deemed beautiful enough to be saved from decay, and widdled into objects of unique beauty. We are especially proud to show Bart's creations made from fallen trees of Stissing Mountain under the hand-hewn beams of 3007 Church Street.
