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.
Here are some supplies and tools we find essential in our everyday work around the shop. We may receive a commission from sales referred by our links; however, we have carefully selected these products for their usefulness and quality.
