With his apprentice Samer, he has crafted this bench that highlights some of the most complex and beautiful elements of carpentry, exposing visible joints and accentuating the grain in the cherry and walnut wood. Turquoise Mountain works with Maher and other master artisans from Jordan, Syria, and elsewhere to support regional craft enterprise, and train the next generation of artisan entrepreneurs.
