I was interviewed by Jane Lindholm on VPR, for her show Vermont Edition last Wednesday.  The topic of the show was Vermont Furniture And Woodworking, and included a discussion with Jean Burks from the Shelburne Museum, in Shelburne, Vermont, about their new show of Vermont furniture to 1850.  Here’s the text from the article on the VPR website:

Vermont Furniture And Woodworking

In 1839, Bennington cabinet-maker Hastings Kendrick placed an advertisement in the Vermont Gazette. His tagline? “Rich and tasty furniture.” The Shelburne Museum used that phrase as the title for their big new exhibit: “Rich and Tasty: Vermont Furniture to 1850.”

The exhibit’s curator, Shelburne Museum curator emerita Jean Burks joins us to talk about the varied and sophisticated world of Vermont furniture making in the nineteenth century. We’re also joined by award-winning woodworker and furniture-maker David Hurwitz of Randolph, 2013’s Vermont woodworker of the year.
