This annual magazine celebrates the preservation, research and restoration of historic furniture. Its multi-disciplinary approach brings together the perspectives of furniture makers, conservators and scholars to span woodworking past and present, with a special focus on pre-industrial tools and methodology.

The inaugural issue includes interviews with:

  • Museum curator Gerald Ward and period furniture maker and restorer Phil Lowe.
  • A visit to the Yale Furniture Study, and an exploration of how designs are passed down through history, written by George Walker.
  • Two antique works of furniture – a card table and a secretary – are analyzed in depth (even showing X-rays of the card table’s joinery!).
  • Other articles include how to balance a traditional approach against modern efficiency.
  • Distinguishing marks that help authenticate period furniture, a carving tutorial by Al Breed and much more.
