On Sunday, July 22, my friend Paul Dzioba and I will be demonstrating the execution of mid century joinery in one of the finest houses in North America.
Mount Pleasant was built 1762-1765 by Master Builder Thomas Nevell. The house was owned initially by a Scottish Privateer, then briefly by Benedict Arnold. As you can see, the woodwork is fabulous.
This is a special event, to some extent a celebration of the of the structural repairs recently completed. The period furniture, usually present, was removed for the repair work and has not yet been replaced. This offers we woodworkers a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with real 18th c woodwork.
