Today, I have posted a historic woodworking tribute to Gillow and Company, a British Furniture Company run by three generations of the Gillow Family from 1730 to 1840. The family successfully imported mahogany from the West Indies ad created a productive furniture workshop in Lancaster, England. They successfully competed against the leading cabinet makers of the 18th century and established their own store in downtown London.

Have a Happy Easter
