Alf Sharp in the Shop

AlfThis week we have the pleasure of working with Alf Sharp in the Popular Woodworking Magazine shop. Alf is a woodworker with one foot in period work and the other planted firmly in the realm of studio furniture. He’s also the 2008 Cartouche award recipient from the Society of American Period Furniture Makers. (A visit to his web site is time well spent.)

Under the pressure of hot lights and cameras swirling about his head as he works, Alf is building a Goddard-Townsend Newport Tea Table (sweet piece of furniture). Below is a short, Iphone-shot clip by David Thiel to give you a taste of what’s coming. Mark your calendar. This video is due out in late November. Enjoy.
