Crafting a Breakfast Table for Windsor Historical Society’s Strong-Howard House: A Woodworking Demonstration

Event Date/Time

Nov 12, 2013
7:00 pm

Description

Crafting a Breakfast Table for Windsor Historical Society’s Strong-Howard House: A Woodworking Demonstration

See a master craftsman at work at Windsor Historical Society.  The newly-opened parlor of Windsor Historical Society’s Strong-Howard House contains two reproduction breakfast tables made by Doug Smith and Dick Tomkins, students at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking, modeled on a Connecticut Valley example in a private collection. Join teacher Bob Van Dyke, Founder and Director of the school to find out how they did it.  Van Dyke will discuss the breakfast table form in the late 18th century and early 19th century.  He will detail the reproduction process from measuring the original table, to pattern making, to class construction.  Using sample parts of a breakfast table, Van Dyke will detail the construction process, and using a scroll saw, show how the piercing was done on the table stretchers.

One view will be the two finished breakfast tables, images of breakfast table variations, and some material on the history of breakfast tables including probate inventories and a 1792 cabinetmaker’s price list. 

Cost $6 adults, $5 seniors/ students, $4 WHS members.
