Programs

 

Carpenters
Working Wood

From turned, green wood chairs to elaborate marquetry pieces, pre-industrial furniture in America took many forms and sprang from numerous traditions. With each tradition came different sets of tools, shop structures, and approaches to solving problems in a common material: wood. For this annual conference, we have brought together an impressive group of presenters to speak to some of these different traditions with an emphasis on shops and tools.
