Tell us about your business.Hi, My name is Tamas Fodor, I am a furniture maker and wood architect and have been working in this field for the past 15 years. 10 years ago, I moved to New York City, where I have had great opportunities to design and make furniture for a number of well known restaurants throughout the city. Since receiving my Masters Degree in Wood Science and Architecture, I have had huge interest in Organic Architecture and four years ago I started the path to developing my own designs and bringing them to life. An opportunity came where I was able to purchase some land upstate, near Binghamton, NY; and my weekends were filled with building a Barn, which would eventually become my Woodworking shop. In the summer of 2012, I finally started creating my 3 gazebo designs and built ‘The Arches’, ‘The Butterfly’ and ‘The Spa’ and ‘GardenArc’ was born.
