October 2107 News & Updates:


1.  I'm carving traditional Bellamy Eagles, ca. 1890's Portsmouth, NH & Kittery, Maine.  About to gold leaf 6 eagles.  I've done five styles so far. See photos from my carving bench at the bottom of this page for a slide show and my new "Bellamy Eagle" page for photos and tutorials.

   I've got a new eagle, the "Bellamy 1812 Eagle" almost done - click on the eagle page for a slide show on how I made it.


2.  Entering my folding-leaf walnut Federal side table (with tons of inlay and veneer) in some competitions.  See photos and slide show ("table No. 3") at the bottom of this page.


3.  Working on side table No. 7 of my series of 12 tables.  Each one features different inlay and veneer designs.  Photos below.  See the new slide show featuring the tables to the left, and also the tutorials on the 'Federal End Table' page.


4.  Writing an article for the Society of Period Furniture Makers on Chester County Furniture.  I'll put the link here after publication.
