Period Furniture - But What Period? Part 1 - Article by Jim Allen

Guild Member member and Treasurer Jim Allen has submitted a well researched, peer reviewed article on "Period" furniture.  The article spans generations of furniture from the 17th century Jacobean Period to the 20th century Mid-Century Modern discussing designers and clarifying the periods for specific characteristics and issues that morphed one period to another.  Special considerations are given to the woodworking reader when the article describes period-specific joinery and tools.  Moreover, Jim adds economical, historical and geographical influences that introduced or phased out various periods.

The article was originally printed in the Guild of New Hampshire Woodworkers' The Journal magazine as Parts 1 (link above) and 2 (link below) in the fall, 2017 and spring, 2018 issues, respectively.
