A few years ago, Glen Huey and I traveled to Winston Salem, North Carolina to visit MESDA and do research for a book of measured drawings of early southern American furniture. MESDA is different from most museums and their collection isn’t the ultra-high end rich guy’s furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries, the collection is comprised of excellent examples of what “regular guys” would own. Glen and I selfishly included pieces that caught our eye and spent the next few months preparing measured drawings. The result is similar to my “Shop Drawings” books; the first portion of the book is introductory text, followed by the drawings.
Normally I steer people to purchase my books from me but I don’t carry this book in my store. I stumbled upon a crazy price from Lee Valley earlier today, and if you’re at all interested in this book you can pick up a copy for less money that I can get it for wholesale. This book likely won’t go to a second printing, so you should get it while you can.
