Dale Peel and Myron Shewell

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – Canopy H

Growing up in Sanpete County and playing in the many pioneer homes around town sparked Dale Peel’s interest in early Utah furniture. By taking apart broken pine lounges, cupboards, tables and chairs, he learned how pioneers made furniture from local pine rather than hardwood. Today he specializes in the reproduction of Mormon pine furniture, a regional style that flourished during the nineteenth century. For over 25 years Peel Furniture Works has offered a variety of custom artistry in styles and forms he is now passing along to his apprentice.
