Jerome Bias Profile

Jerome, who lives and works on a dairy farm in Orange County, N.C., has developed a passion for building period reproductions of furniture pieces from Eastern North Carolina and Southern Virginia, inspired in large part by the work of Thomas Day. Jerome uses only tools and techniques from the time period in which he’s building to produce pieces that not only look like the original, but exhibit the building processes the original maker would have experienced. He is also a quilter and upholsterer.

Jerome has given talks and woodworking demonstrations for the Chapel Hill Preservation Society and the Thomas Day Educational Foundation, and he serves as a consultant with the North Carolina Museum of History.
