WELSH DRESSER
BILL STUDEBAKER ~ MAINE

In the days before built-in kitchen cabinetry utilitarian pieces like this would have been found in most homes. With closed storage below and open shelving above divided by a broad work surface, they saw daily use storing foodstuffs and the tools and utensils needed for preparing and serving them. This example shows a shaped foot and cove-molded cornice as well as scalloped upper supports. Combined with the raised-panel mortise and tenon doors it displays the features of a well-made cabinet of the late Eighteenth Century. We will assemble this piece in class and then give it a distressed painted finish to show the years of use. The completed piece will be suitable for use either as a treasured antique in a formal setting or the focal point of a kitchen scene. This piece is not offered elsewhere & must be handcut with each kit prepared in advance for you. Payment required with registration. Class size limited to 10 students. All levels accepted.
