When local furniture designer John Economaki developed a severe allergy to wood dust, he turned from making furniture to making heirloom hand tools for woodworkers. Drawing on his background in industrial design and knowledge of construction needs, Economaki established Bridge City Tool Works in 1983. Using the most contemporary digital technology, Economaki designs tools to stand the test of time. The company’s products, sketches, and tools from the past thirty years will be on view for the first time.
