Start/End Time: 6:00 pm, 7:30 pm When they say, “They don’t build ‘em like they used to,” we know what they mean. Many people are not sure what style they are looking at when they see a piece of furniture at an estate sale or antique store. Using examples in the MMofA collection, Scott Wetter, woodworker and furniture historian, shares the nuanced secrets of early American furniture making. This talk is the first in a series designed to help us understand furniture design, and how and it has evolved through time. PAY WHAT YOU CAN NO RESERVATIONS REQUIRED
