Discuss topics not covered in other categories. / Dealing with real ivory
« Last post by Jeff Saylor on February 07, 2020, 12:14:31 PM »

I just acquired an entire Baldwin baby grand piano keyboard from a friend and it has real ivory and ebony keys.  Dealing with the ivory, what legal problems may I encounter if I use these veneers for inlay material in future projects?  I have no paperwork, only pics of the disassembled keyboard.


Thanks for any input.

While I was attending a recent Decorative Arts Symposium at the Georgia Museum of Art, Jeff Evans at Jeffrey S Evans & Assoc. Auctions told me he had purchased the remaining MESDA inventory of The Furniture of Charleston.   
He is selling the 3-volume set at the great price of $45.00. 
You can Find it on his website - https://www.jeffreysevans.com/education-and-research/online-shop-for-books/

I thought I had seen it all. Saw this in a store in Kentucky. The shop owner had no idea what it was. I thought it might be a pool cue holder of some sort but it's too light and no base. Any ideas what it could be?

I can’t help with contacting Rob Millard, but also have Al Breeds drawing and intend to build a copy of the clock. My wife won’t buy tools for me anymore as gifts - says I already have everything and she is right - so now I ask for plans. I got the plans for Christmas this year (well, last year now).


If you haven’t seen this website, Ive found interior photos of period shelf clocks available here: [size=78%]http://adamsbrown.com/wordpress1/antique-clocks-for-sale/shelf-clocks/aaron-willard-boston-c-1800-kidney-dial-massachusetts-shelf-clock/[/size]

For those of us on the west coast who wish to give the look of eastern white with an availability on the west coast I have found that molding grade super pine performs well.   Be selective and try to get quarter sawn stock.  I have worked Windsor chair seats from both eastern white pine and molding grade sugar pine and I actually prefer the sugar pine.    I have done a brick up for a federal card table and it performs well.

I made new legs because the original legs had an awkward curve. I tried to duplicate the shape of the cabriole leg in  Albert Sack's book "The New Fine Points of Furniture" page 32 in which he describes the leg as approaching perfection.
