Who don’t love free. Thank you met museum of art. Goddard and Townsend were Quaker cabinet makers from Newport, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, who made furniture so exquisite it is now in the Met. More about them here:

I wish my shop notebook looked this good. It seems all great cabinet makers were also great artists in their own right.

The images are great. Also, I have to ask. How come in the olden days they kept all the goats on an island. They must have smelled really bad back then 🙂

About senrabc

Hi, this is not really about anything. Just me testing the intertubes with my own random meanderings and thoughts. Ostensibly, big word, I’m using this site as my personal log of sorts. I’m a random guy with 4 kids and a beautiful wife living in sunny Florida. Pardon the gratuitous posts with pictures of cute kids. I have an iPhone and can’t help myself. My day job is working in the area of informatics at the University of Florida where I like the shell. Oh, yeah and incase you can’t tell I like woodworking with handtools. Goes along with my command line philosophy 😉 Thanks for reading. Christopher P. Barnes
