Hey folks,

 Just want to let everyone know that we still have spots available at the Maine Coast Workshop in beautiful seaside Camden, Maine this summer/fall.  Class size should be small (5 on average), so it's a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor, as we get on the map, for some amazing classes....  [/font][/size]

[/size]Here's the topic:

Building what you can't see.  Join Ray as he explains his process of reproducing a Jonathan Shoemaker style Chippendale Armchair, without actually seeing the original.  Follow along, through research, drawing plans, making patterns and techniques used to reproduce one of the finest examples of the Chippendale  style.

I'm working on a secretary desk. Right now building the prospect box. Do any of you know where that name comes from? I can't find any information on this.

Just received the American Period Furniture journal on Friday 29th.
Hi Bob,  I have not received the jornal yet.  At what point should I be worried that it is lost?  I am in Philadelphia, and have experienced nearly 1 month delays in items shipped by USPS in December, so I am trying to be patient...

Case Furniture / Nathan Lombard Eagle Inlay
« Last post by Ronald Young on January 24, 2021, 04:28:51 PM »
I’m looking for information on making the Nathan Lombard Eagle inlay shown on his secretary bookcase on the  book cover of American Furniture, the Federal Period. I seem to recall an article or demonstration by Steve Latta on making this inlay using gouges. Any help be appreciated. 
Thanks Mark,

I took advantage of the new postings of PDF versions of the past issues and downloaded a copy of the 2004 issue.  Wonderful collection of articles.  Wish the pictures were more of the publication quality, but the article is easy to follow.  The knife case is more involved than I originally conceived, however, I'm now more interested to follow through.  Steve Lash did a superb reconstruction.
