Last week while teaching a class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking on building the Connecticut lowboy from the February 2014 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine (#209) to seven excellent woodworkers (read more about the class here), I was asked to take a trip into New York city to the Metropolitan Museum (the Met for short). Of course, it took only minutes for me to say, “Hell yes.”
To prepare for the fun, I spent a bit of time online searching for furniture and collections found in the museum – what else should you do while hanging out in a hotel after class ends? I know. Drinking at local pubs is a great idea, but I’d done that a few times the days before.
While searching, I landed on a number of web sites that showed me photos and images of a few pieces the museum proudly had for all to see. One site, however, caused me to pause. I immediately pasted a link into my computer. Below you can see the page.
In the lower right-hand corner, you see a green “Download PDF” box. A simple click in that box allows you to grab a great museum book free of charge. That’s FREE. Click the image to get to that page on the museum’s web site, then click the box and the download begins.
