Ferrisburgh Historical Society to meet at workshop

FERRISBURGH — At its April 9 meeting, the Ferrisburgh Historical Society will visit the workshop of Craig Farrow, a master furniture maker and joiner.
Since 1972, Farrow has carved out a career building reproductions of 17th and 18th century furniture and architectural components, working as a joiner, turner, carver,  and cabinetmaker. He works in the old, slow ways, using antique tools and finishes, and making his own tools if necessary to recreate an antique with faithful precision.
Farrow works out of his own one-man shop, but also teaches classes at various historic sites including Historic Deerfield, Mass.
Farrow is passionate about sharing his skill with tools and working wood. At the visit, he will show examples, talk about and demonstrate how the wonderful work of our past was made from tree to the finished piece.
