D. Juan García González : Carpenter
Juan González García is a young craftsman who always applies his aesthetic sensibility and know how to his carpentry. He comes from a family of several artisans, with whom he worked for many years until he established his own workshop and now specializes in restoring antique furniture. He's been commissioned by Fundación para el Desarrollo de la Artesanía Canaria (FEDACE) for which he has restored many pieces such as the centuries old benches at the Canary Islands Government building. He also copies traditional furniture in his workshops like palanganeros, shelves and loceros using reclaimed wood tea roof or doors. Part of his time also is spent on the restoration of wood work in the old rural houses as his own, in which one is available for rent for rural holiday (Casa Rural Las Calas de Valleseco).
