Join us for a day celebrating the woodworking techniques of 19th-century cabinetmaker Nathan Lombard and his contemporaries. Speakers and presenters will include OSV trustee Norm Abram, host of the New Yankee Workshop and Master Carpenter on This Old House; Steve Brown and Will Neptune representing North Bennett Street School; Freddy Roman, woodworker and president of the New England Chapter of the Society of American Period Furniture Makers; Christie Jackson, OSV’s Senior Curator of Decorative Arts; OSV’s Curator of Mechanical Arts, Tom Kelleher. Come marvel at Lombard’s extraordinary inlay and explore the story of a local 19th-century cabinetmaker. This unique, all-day event is designed to encourage fresh conversations about the history, design, and construction of New England furniture. The forum coincides with OSV’s current exhibit, Delightfully Designed – The Furniture and Life of Nathan Lombard, on view until May 4, 2014.
