« Part 19: Norway's Medieval Timber Framers Part 20 of Historic Woodworker Videos series Part 21: Video Tribute to Edward Barnsley, Arts and Craft Furiture »

When I hear of a corporate mistreatment of a fellow woodworker, I searched historically for a company that treated tbeir employee well. I came across the name of Showers Brothers Furniture Company and created a video on the company and its first manager. If you like to view it on You Tube, it can be found at

-- Thanks to the Wood Spirit, Tom

Thanks for posting. What a good company it appears to have been. City Hall is now built on it’s former site
