Current "Woodshop News"


Did anyone else see the current "Woodshop News"?
There's an article about Irion, a PA furniture builder who's building 300 reproduction pieces for _one_ client. The originals are scattered about in museums. To see that collection when it's done...
There's also an article about a lumber dealer in PA, who oddly enough, is the former owner of the same furniture maker.
Interesting reads.

Very interesting. It was nice to see someone with the means to do so was willing to invest in such a fine collection... it lends a boost to the legitimacy of the creation of 18th century style pieces made with 18th century construction methods. Though a vastly different thing from making pieces that look 18th century but are made with 20-21st century construction methods such works are often considered modern... which seems to brand them as illegitimate.

Did you see the description of the lumber yard owner's business / residence property? 300 acres... NICE!
A nice little 3000 foot airstrip would tuck right in there... <G>
