Goodies From the Past
 

Newport Chairs

I find Newport furniture hard to make. The designs are so crisp, clean - they are magic. Mid 18th century Quaker port city that just absolutely nailed it. Kneehole desks, 5 shell secretary desks, these chairs.

My problem is that if you use figured wood you overpower the design. And you can see we like figured wood! But not on Newport. I learned the hard way but I did learn. Use nice plain mahogany and let the design provide the rest.
