Day 2 of the Wmsburg Conference

Tuesday morning saw the continuation of the bureau table by Kaare. He assembled the drawer dividers, with the case together added the feet and a few nailed on parts and then started adding the moldings across the bottom. After Kaare, Dan Faia from the N. Bennett St. school looked at stringing and banding, as well as in lay on the Pembroke table.

After lunch Mack Headley started in earnest on the carved rococo candle stands. I love to see this sort of rococo carving. And Mack’s use of his gouges, the way he wastes material is fascinating.

The evening concluded with a banquet dinner at the Williamsburg Lodge. The food was great and despite some technical difficulties, Dan Faia delivered a really interesting evening talk about the iconic North Bennett Street School.
