My name Is Ian van den Bosch and I am a “Re-designer”. I am a college educated industrial technologist, who has dabbled in engineering, architecture, and above all art. I have tons of original un-excutable ideas, so I choose to turn what was someones passion into other’s dreams. In this particular blog you will find my adventure into furniture refurbishment.
This blog is dedicated to my grandfather Jean Baptiste van den Bosch. Grootvader or Grootvaghutie as we called him was a master craftsman and master carpenter. As a young boy I spent many days in Grootvader’s garage in Alhambra, CA. He passed away at age of 94 in 2013. I was very close to him and I truly miss him. Since his passing I have made it a point to keep his legacy alive and make him proud.
