Ted Watts is a native of the Grand Strand and grew up the son of a local contractor. He attended Virginia Art Institute and Ringling School of Art in the early 70's and began honing his furniture building skills in the late 70's. His popularity for his special artistic touches to furniture pieces began with bar tops and tables for local restaurant owners. His work has made it's way into many homes in the area as well as golf clubs, banks and churches where his works include spiral staircases, cabinets, armoires, mirrors, coffee tables, beds, mantel pieces, desks, dining buffets, tables and chairs. He was awarded Best of Show at the Atalaya Arts and Crafts Festival in 2003 for his drop leaf  pineapple table. Ted takes a great deal of pride in any piece he is commissioned to do, as he feels the the furniture he crafts will become a family heirloom... as he likes to say... he is "creating tomorrows antiques".
