2017 Working Wood Symposium at Colonial Williamsburg



I am excited about the imminent announcement and opening of registration for the 2017 Working Wood Symposium at Colonial Williamsburg this coming February 2-5.  Though I have been a frequent attendee, this will be my first stint as a speaker.  For the “on stage” portion of the event Be Seated! Eighteenth Century Chair Making  I will be demonstrating historic pre-industrial finishing.  Then I will be the banquet speaker afterwards, addressing the topic of integrating traditional techniques into the modern workshop.

It is always a great time of fellowship and learning, and the conference coincides with the annual business meeting and banquet for the Society of American Period Furniture Makers, where we will recognize the winner of this year’s Cartouche Award Jeffrey Roberts.

I hope to see you there!
