Mother's Mid-Century-Modern Bureau
My mother had a life-long interest in woodworking and furniture making.
A graduate of Great Bend Kansas High School in the late 20s, mother opted for shop instead of home economics. The next year, the school passed a rule - you guessed it - prohibiting girls from taking shop.
When my family lived in Venezuela during the halcyon days of the late 50s and early 60s, Mother bought a Shopsmith and built several pieces of furniture.
This photo shows the top of the only remaining piece. It is a bureau in a Mid-Century-Modern style made of beautiful, thick Venezuelan mahogany.
The top and sides are each made from a single plank.
This photo will give you a general sense of the dimension of the wood and the wood's beautiful grain and color.
As the drawers are quite shallow and the piece lived in our dining room in Caracas, I think it was meant to store table linens.
Ah, the expat life!
I estimate Mother made the piece in the late 50s or the very early 60s. Apart from the date the piece was made, the other mystery is whether Mother designed the piece herself or worked from someone else's plans.
Well, you don't build something such as this and have it last 50-plus years without knowing something about furniture making.
At the very least Mother must have had a reference book or two that explained such basics as how to assemble drawers and how to design and build the interior frame that holds the drawers and provides some structure to the piece.
I'd like to think Mother took what she needed from reference books and then designed the bureau on her own. Then again, Mother was an accomplished seamstress who made clothes from pre-printed patterns, so maybe she did use a published pattern for the bureau.
I'll wager, though, that even if this bureau came from someone else's pattern, it's the only one ever made from exquisite old Venezuelan mahogany.
By the time I was old enough to pay attention to and remember what was going on around me - that would have been the early 60s - Mother had accomplished what she set out to do with furniture making, and had moved on to ceramics in a big way.
I took this photo on August 22, 2009, but I backdated it in flickr to 1958 so it would fit in reasonable chronological order into my set on our life abroad.
Home-made dining table (2)
I made this table as a test piece in 1999. I had purchased a large white pine tree and had it milled up into planks, 14 feet by 2.5 inches by (up to) 40 inches, with the intention of using them to replace my living room floor during renovations of our east Sangerville farm house. I wanted to have the widest pine floors in east Sangerville. After they had dried five years in my barn, I took half of one plank to build this table, to see what the wood was like to work with.
Ultimately, I went with a different plan for the flooring, and sold or used most of the pine planks for home-made furniture. The two largest planks (40" wide) were bought by the owner of Spring Creek Bar-B-Q in Monson, for restaurant tables.
