Phil LoweThe woodworking community lost an icon with the passing of Phil Lowe in January 2021. He was well respected as an exemplary craftsman, author, and teacher. Phil was a long time SAPFM member, 2005 Cartouche Award recipient, frequent contributor to the annual American Period Furniture Journal, presenter at many of our events, and personal friend to many of us. He is survived by his wife and daughters. It is through their generosity that Phil’s lifetime library of original drawings and furniture plans is being shared with the woodworking community for download without cost. 

In order to preserve and share Phil’s extensive library of furniture plans, they are being scanned and shared for public use. This effort is being led by Artie Keenan, Phil Lowe’s dear friend and right hand man, along with Nick Maraldo, Phil’s longtime student and instructor at the Furniture Institute of Massachusetts and SAPFM member. We thank these two gentleman for taking on this tremendous task.

The plans are made available under the Public License to Use Philip C. Lowe Furniture Designs.

With the preservation of Phil Lowe’s Drawing Library his legacy will continue as he teaches us for years to come.
