Lectures and Demonstrations 2014

Here's the list of events for this year. I'm looking forward to all of them. The antique show is always great fun, preparing and delivering lectures forces me to refine my thoughts and understanding, and Leonard's Mills is a nice annual end of tourist season wrap up. If you haven't been to Maine before, it's worth coming even aside from the stuff I'm doing. Hope to see you guys there. If you have any questions, shoot me an email or give me a call:

July 26th (time TBA) - I have been asked to give a lecture and guided tour through the Jonathan Fisher House at the 200th Anniversary Event. The talk will be titled “The Fashioning Hand of Jonathan Fisher: An Inside Look at the Parson’s Furniture” More information can be found at

August 13th at 1:00 pm - I will be giving a lecture at the Wilson Museum in Castine, Maine. Titled, “A Comfortable House: Furnishing the Maine Frontier”, this talk will consider the furniture making tradition in preindustrial Maine. More information can be found at

August 16th 9am-2pm - I will be demonstrating at the Jonathan Fisher Antique Show at the Blue Hill Fair Grounds in Blue Hill, ME. I will have a booth with information and will be demonstrating aspects of furniture making using period woodworking tools. More information can be found at

Early October – As is our custom, Julia, Eden, and I will be at the Leonard’s Mills Living History Days at the Maine Forest and Logging Museum in Bradley, ME. The Living History Days is a weekend of historic interpretation of 1790’s life on the Maine Frontier. All weekend I will be doing demonstrations of preindustrial woodworking while Julia shows fireside cooking and Eden runs amok. It’s always a blast. More information can be found at
