    Just wait till the Social Justice Warriors get a whif of this. It’s nice and cozy to dream that only cotton and abject racism came out of the South before the war came and made everything better, and wholesome and just. People like to omit huge chunks lf history in their quest to strengthen their narrative, only to actually make it weaker, by virtue of their fabrications. In short, why did hou have to say "Old South"? You’re a marked man now for life; might as well start making those crosses in you woodshop (because the true racist idiots will think the same, that you’re one of them, might as well take some orders and make a penny).

    How do the earbuds hold up the sweat? If it breaks 70 I sweat like a fat man on a diet in a donut shop.

    James I have a friend who is an experience cabinet maker and wants to make a book. He also has a youtube channel. Do you have any one you can recommend that can help with book publishing? Thank you !

    Thanks James.  This is the type of useful information we have come to expect for the Stumpy web site

    I’ve been looking for a quality pair of BT noise-cancelling ear buds and BINGO you deliver. Thanks consider them purchased via your link. And as a Southerner I will consider the book also but would like to see the pieces featured first. Need to build a set of night stands.
    Always good stuff from you and your Dad and I really like the direction you have taken in video production.

    going to get that book Stumpy thank you. raised in the south and I think southern working class furniture has definitely not been given the credit it’s due. look forward to adding this book and a few of the projects to my collection.

    Also, I’d like to ask your opinion on something. My daughter recently graduated from high school and was thinking about a hope chest or something like that. Something that she could hand down one day. If you know of a good place to look for design or have come across a cool one in your studying or travels that really made you go wow. that’s awesome. having a very hard time choosing. thanks so much brother. look forward to your newsletter every month

    I had just found out about those ear buds from the new issue of Fine Woodworking yesterday and was going to get some from Amazon soon, but since you have a discount code I already followed the link and have ordered the pro. Thanks Stumpy.

    Thanks for the kind words, James. MESDA is unique among museums and the furniture (and other items in their collection) are a better reflection of what you would see in an average home of the period (North or South) than what is on display in most museums. The fancy Philadelphia and Boston pieces that garner the most attention were more or less museum pieces when they were made. Fine furniture was also made in the large cities of the South, but we felt that it was a worthwhile effort to document these pieces.
    This book was patterned after my other books of measured drawings, Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture and Shop Drawings for Greene & Greene Furniture in particular. There is a long tradition of producing books like this
    and I believe it is important to document how particular pieces of a particular time were made. Writer’s tend to be a lazy bunch and too many take the easy way out when it comes to the details that are important to the original time and place.
    It helps if you know the basics of how furniture goes together and how to read a technical drawing to get the most our of books like this, but if you don’t, the time spent with the book will be more valuable in the long run than following step-by-step instructions for fewer pieces that may or may not be accurate reflections of the period. Measured drawings are the language of the craft, so this is a good way to immerse yourself in that language and discover what makes each piece interesting.
    The history of this book also makes a good story, for it is an indication of the current sorry state of the publishing industry. All of my other books have remained “in print” since their original publication. “Furniture in the Southern Style” should be no different, but it was allowed to go out of print as stock dwindled of the initial print run. The remaining copies were sold off at a huge discount because no one at the publishing company saw the value of paying for warehouse space. Interestingly, a few months after clearing out the old stock, the publisher held a woodworking conference in Winston-Salem, NC, in conjunction with MESDA. I believe that a short “print on demand” run was made for the conference and to stock the MESDA bookstore.

    Glen Huey deserves more recognition in the world of furniture-making IMO. His books are uniformly excellent. He is also a superb teacher and maker.

    Is it just me or did it sound like there was a plastic bag blowing around the entire video?
