Chesapeake Chapter Spring 2019 Meeting
« on: February 04, 2019, 09:33:12 AM »
Greetings SAPFM members!  We are pleased to announce the next meeting of the SAPFM Chesapeake Chapter: on Saturday, May 25th we will return to Olde Mill Cabinet Shop in York, PA for our spring meeting.  We'll open registration in April, so look for that follow-up post.  All SAPFM members are invited to attend, though if space becomes a constraint we may need to close the registration early. 

David Wilson will be our guest presenter for this event.  A graduate of North Bennett Street School's two-year cabinet and furniture making program, David set up a home and a store (Antick Furniture) in Lambertville, NJ where he makes and sells a
wide range of furniture inspired by 18th century designs; from painted rustic beds, dressing tables and shelves to elaborately carved gaming tables and intricately inlaid sideboards. For a better sense of David's work, you can view his online gallery at https://antickcabinet.com/gallery-beds/ and see more about his store at https://antickcabinet.com/.  For his demonstration, we've been discussing a focus on the highly stylized and abstracted flat chip carved technique done on the Hadley chest...but we'll have the opportunity to explore other styles as well.

We'd like everyone to please consider contributing to this meeting by: (a) providing a demonstration of a technique or build that would be of interest to the group (e.g., carving a trifid foot; turning a finial; inlaying a patere), and (b) bringing a completed item for show & tell (this need not be a major completed project...it can be a tool you've made, or practice pieces that illustrate a technique (inlay, carving, etc).  Please reply to this email with your ideas for demonstration and/or show & tell so that we can work it into our agenda.  Also, we have traditionally encouraged members to bring guests who may be interested in joining SAPFM (subject to space constraints), so please consider which of your woodworking friends would like to come along.

Here's a photo of David's work based on the Hadley chests from the Connecticut River Valley from about 1695-1725.  His demonstration will cover (but not necessarily be limited to) the carving for these chests.
