New Book on Southern Furniture: What Pieces Would You Include?
If you’re a student of furniture, furniture scholar, woodworker or just looking for another creative outlet, it’s a good thing that you stopped by to read this post. Popular Woodworking Magazine sent two editors (Yay, me!) to the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts and to Old Salem – both in Winston-Salem, NC – to dig up information, photos and facts on southern furniture.
After a week of very tough research (yeah, right) and fact gathering, our guys returned home with a huge assemblage of great pieces built south of the Mason-Dixon line. With 65 pieces in the folder, one of the biggest jobs is to trim the numbers until we have the right amount for a book that’s due out later, but not too much later, in the year. That’s where we need your help.
We’ve loaded the selected pieces into a Flickr set so you can take a look at each piece and help us select the pieces for the book (click the link below to open the photo set). Leave a comment below the photos, or simply tag your favorites. Thanks in advance for your help.
