Drawing primarily from the Colonial Williamsburg collection, the staff of the Anthony Hay Cabinet Shop will demonstrate the re-creation of three desks that span the first three quarters of the 18th century. Brian Weldy will illustrate the construction of a block front desk, that quintessential New England form, with a surprising history of manufacture in the Norfolk, Virginia area in the 1770s. As a comparison and contrast to this, Kaare Loftheim will walk attendees through a Norfolk desk and bookcase that shows the structural refinements more typical of urban English shops of the same period. Highlighting examples from our extensive collections, Tara Chicirda, Colonial Williamsburg’s curator of furniture, will kick off the conference by setting all of this in context. A dinner program featuring master carpenter Garland Wood will focus on the recent construction of the massive armory complex and its three workshop buildings.
The 17th annual Working Wood in the 18th Century conference features demonstrations of the techniques involved in re-creating examples of iconic pieces.
Participate in lectures and discussions as experts examine the changing approaches in Anglo-American case construction and design running the gamut from typical to novel.
