About Woodworking by Jessen

Meet Alan Jessen

Located in Benicia, California, craftsman Alan Jessen brings his Nordic heritage and Minnesota roots to creating elegant, natural hardwood tables designed for today’s smaller spaces.

Design Inspiration

“The design of the rectangular tables came from my appreciation of the simplicity found in contemporary and mid-century design.  They’re attractive, elegant tables in hard-to-find small sizes that make the room feel larger.”

“The curved tables were inspired by the organic, whimsical styling of Art Nouveau that brings a smile when you see it.  I wanted to come up with something fun, fluid and alive that brightens your mood.”
