Peach State Nov 13 gathering
« on: October 12, 2021, 11:04:04 AM »
Peach State Chapter SAPFM Meeting
Saturday, November 13, 2021 – 9:00AM
Arnie’s Home: 395 Canterbury Lake, Alpharetta (Milton), GA 30004


This will be a one day free event where you will also have an opportunity to share your latest projects in our lunch-time “show and tell’ session.  Lunch, drinks and snacks will be provided.  Bring your small projects and a thumb-drive with larger projects. 

Bill Markert has been researching early Georgia furniture for a number of years.  He will discuss the results of some of his research and present his replica of the earliest surviving piece of Georgia furniture.  This is a table attributed to Ebenezer, Georgia that dates back to about 1734.

David Coker will discuss his research, design and construction of a pair of rice-carved four post beds based on an original bed from a Charleston, South Carolina rice plantation.  These beds were featured in the Summer Edition of Pins and Tails.

Bob Baker recently completed a beautifully carved and figured Chapin high-chest.  He will present this chest and discuss the research, design and construction of this item.

Jay Stallman will present his Newport tall case clock made from highly figured maple.  Jay was able to present some in-progress photos during our June show and tell but has completed more work on this clock and will have a longer time to present and answer questions at this meeting.

Ron Young plans to complete a beautiful Federal Period reverse serpentine chest of drawers before our November meeting.  He will present the research, design and construction of this piece.
