Garry Knox Bennett passed away on January 28 at the age of 87. Bennett began his art career as a painter and sculptor before teaching himself woodworking and furniture-making, as well as metalwork. Bennett cut an imposing figure in the woodworking community due not only to his 6-foot-9 frame, but also to his experimental combination of fine woodwork with metal and more unconventional materials. He famously drove a 16d nail into the door of a finely finished padauk cabinet as an irreverent statement on the nature of studio furniture.
