Our tour was lead by the House curator, Brandy Culp. She has 20 years of experience and deep knowledge of Charleston furniture. Our tour was in depth educational experience. The group of 20 woodworkers were given extraordinary access and freedom to see the furniture pieces. Brandy was assisted by Russel Buskirk ( http://russellbuskirk.com/ ). Russell is the chief conservator. He repairs ( rebuilds !! ) many of the pieces of furniture that we observed. The foundation has done an incredible job of restoring the house to it's original color, finishes and soon the fabrics used in each room.
This was certainly an education in furniture history.
Many thanks to Brandy and Russell for sharing their wisdom with a very intense and delighted crowd of woodworkers.
These pictures are NOT to be shared in any manner.
Started about 9am till about 10:30 so the sun was directly on the houses.
I always enjoy Charleston, Maybe next time I will get up early for real sun rise pictures.
It just fun to look at their products.
I have been contemplating a new DP table top for some time. So here it is. This is a long build album with descriptions on each picture. The pictures are almost in the order of the build.
The final table top is 15" deep and 28" wide. It feels really good and will solve lots of clamping problems. I had to laugh when I did my final review of the album. It looks like a BIG commercial for woodpeck.com I am a very good customer.
