Welcome to Fred Coates Website
This website is the unofficial fansite of Calgary woodworker, craftsman and artisan ~ Fred Coates. His last few furniture pieces have been a synthesis of his career. These pieces were done without the back streets and alley ways of his earlier mission spanish conquistador influenced pieces. The joints go a little deeper and the music of the wood expands from his folk and jazz roots into a classical combination of woodworking instrumentation. This new style can be found in the homes of many Calgarians, and has gained him a very strong reputation among woodworkers and fans that have remained with him as he has become stronger than ever.
