Bob Vrboncic at the age of 16 years started an apprenticeship with the carpenter's union in the Pittsburgh area. After graduation, he continued to work for four years at Wood Chips with a master craftsman and develop his carpentry skills as a finish cabinetmaker. During the next 20 years, he continued to work on his craft and decided to pursue his dream and launched Future Antiquities. Bob has been juried by the PA Wilds Artisans Group and exhibits at trade shows and galleries in Pennsylvania.
Future Antiquities builds functional artwork employing the same techniques as early craftsmen to create beautiful long lasting custom furniture for prestigious customers who appreciate unique designs and high quality products.
