« Part 37: Israel and Albert Sack, Godfathers of Early American Furniture Part 38 of Historic Woodworker Videos series Part 39: Leslie Garland Bolling created dignity and beauty in award winning wooden sculptures »

Three days before the big holiday, I wanted to publish another historical woodworker tribute on a father-son team of cabinet-makers who created some of the finest Federal Furniture – John and Thomas Seymour. They made furniture in Portland Maine and Boston MA.

You can find the video at

Over the years have made a long series of tributes and feel I am coming to the end of this series. When you at the YouTube Hoosierwoodcraft, Please subscribe.

Thank you and Merry Christmas

I guess I am your number one fan. You’ve done a great job. Editing and photographing as well as the other tasks are time consuming. My friend CharlieK was lost his enthusiasm for interviewing YouTube woodworkers as it didn’t get a big response.

Told my wife you are the Ken Burns of Woodworking!

Merry Christmas

It’s a lot of work! If you still enjoy it, don’t quit! But there is a nice body of work you have posted. Wish more people would check it out. Merry Christmas!
