« Part 16: J.D. Fosdick, Father of Wood Burning Part 17 of Historic Woodworker Videos series Part 18: Video Tribute to Charles Eames »

As a follow-up on Robby44 submission of his Molesworth’s cabinet (with Norm Adams design), want to present my woodworking tribute to Tom Molesworth, the father of western furniture.
The focus is more on the furniture business and nostalgia than it is on woodworking. But, you got to admire his crew in finding fir burls across the west and incorporating them into his furniture.

Heh, guys, I am getting very little reaction to this video. What’s up. Would like some honest feedback?
