In the early days of America, if you needed a piece of furniture you did not go to the store.  Instead, you went to see the joiner. He was called a joiner for the various joints he made in the building of wooden objects.

The joiner was both craftsman and artist, not only building utilitarian pieces but decorative pieces as well.

"The craftsman of yesterday might look like a poorly informed man only before we take a longer and better look.  His tools might appear pathetically poor, but his ways were honest and lasting and beautiful . . ." (Eric Sloane)
