I got pictures. Maybe, I got too many pictures. I have been adding pictures faster than I’ve been blogging about them. At this rate I’ll never catch up and if I don’t catch up I’ll never be able to quit. I try not to leave things unfinished.
I’m going way back into the archives to November 2012 and January of 2013. These are from before I started shooting dovetails and other construction details. They are, however, pictures of interesting furniture.
From November, we have this unusual till from a painted chest. First, it’s on the right. Most tills I’ve seen are on the left. Then, there are the drawers below the till. One of the drawers has a lock. Most tills don’t have drawers.
Then, there is this nice, simple desk. Most of us grew up with one just like it.

In January, I saw this boarded chest on stilts. Preparing for global climate change?
And I really liked the gallery on this rather refined secretary. You don’t see this everyday. Unless you work in antiques shop.

For political reasons, I sat for a while with my wife as she was watched Gone With the Wind for the nth time a few weeks back. I avoided the movie until seeing it at a revival house shortly after we were married. The things we do for love. Although admired by many, me, not so much. I have a hard time getting excited about people who can’t dress themselves. Don’t love Downton Abby either.
I did discover a way to make them a bit more interesting. Just go to your Happy Place®, zone out on the dialog and just look at the furniture. In GWTW, they even have some scenes with cutaway views of houses.
Speaking of Downton Abbey, I was at Winterthur recently. They had a large selection of Downton Abbey books in the Americana section. Didn’t make sense to me either.
