Summary

Historic forms of simple furniture have long been popular with amateur woodworkers, collectors and those seeking to better understand our past. But furniture from the Southern United States has largely been ignored, and Furniture in the Southern Stylefills that gap. Furniture in the Southern Styledocuments proportions and details of this important and distinctive style through measured drawings of original pieces in the MESDA collection, and information in the Object and Craftsman databases at MESDA. The focus of Furniture in the Southern Styleare the less formal pieces, largely unknown to those outside of the area where they are produced. The pieces you will see are great demonstrations of the style, each appropriately documented with information and photographs. The heart of this book are the measured construction drawings, allowing you to better understand and reproduce these pieces. Also included are chapters covering the historic context of the furniture, the craftsmen behind the pieces, and the techniques they used.
