Member events / Backstage at the Henry Ford Museum Feb 23, 2019

Saturday February 23, 2019
As we discussed in our spring meeting, the “fall” Great Lakes Chapter meeting is to be held at the Henry Ford Museum. Ed Stuckey has graciously been handling the plans but has run into a snag. The Museum curator is not available until winter. I am ok with this…we’ll just have a later than usual Chapter meeting.

 

Henry Ford Conservation team and Curator of Decorative Arts are looking forward to our visit at 10am-11:30am.

 

We are asking for your confirmation. We’re hoping to get 25 people in order to keep the cost down. Please let me know if you are planning to attend:

    1/2 hour presentation in meeting room
    1 hour tour in our Fully Furbished exhibit discussion the various collections in detail.

 

The cost would be $200 for the tour (they typically charge $200 per group of 15 so this would be a discount for 25 people), plus $200 for their conservators time (typically they charge $100 per conservation staff per hour so this would also be at a discounted rate)  They also charge for curatorial time, but will waive that for this visit.  Total would be $400 for a group of 25.

 

Again…I need your confirmation and a decent attendance to make this work. Having a curated look at this important collection is well worth the time and money.

 

I look forward to seeing you there!

Optimally the scraper should be about an 1/8th" away from the material being scraped. The straighter the grain the better.

Frank,
Sorry for the delay in responding. The problem is that with a smaller column the scraper blade cradel with it's scraper is further away from the column. Depending on the scraper material you might get chatter from the scraper. Similar to a wash boarded gravel road going up a hill. Hope this make semse.

That's really nice, and great pictures. Thanks for sharing.  I see in your original post you were looking for plans; did you ever find them?

Peach State Chapter / Tony Kubalak: Understanding the Garvan Lowboy Carvings
« Last post by Ken Johnson on July 26, 2018, 04:25:35 PM »
 The 2018 Peach State Chapter fall program will feature Tony Kubalak on the Garvan lowboy/dressing table.  The two day weekend presentation will be on Saturday and Sunday, November 10-11 from 9AM-5PM (both days) at Woodcraft at 1085 Holcomb Bridge Road, Roswell, Georgia. An optional one day intensive workshop will be on Monday.  Tony has been to Peach State SAPFM before when he did a presentation on the Newport tea table. Tony is an accomplished maker, writer and presenter.  This year he will focus on the lowboy attributed to the “Garvan carver” which is currently in the Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA).  Tony has written two books on carving: “Carving 18th Century Furniture Elements” and “Carving 18th Century Furniture Motifs”.  You can learn more go to www.peachstatesapfm.info
