NEW EXHIBIT – Planed, Grained, & Dovetailed: Cabinetmaking in Rural New England
Located across from the Blacksmith Shop
From coffins and chairs to clock cases and chests of drawers, 19th century cabinetmakers in rural New England produced a wide variety of objects, both every-day and exceptional, using a range of techniques and tools. Planed, Grained, & Dovetailed: Cabinetmaking in Rural New England is an exhibition dedicated to early 19th century cabinetmaking in rural New England. Centered on three main themes – form, process, and people – the exhibition will examine the tools, products, and livelihoods of rural cabinetmakers in the early 19th century.
