From Joinery to Cabinet-Making

Janusz-Lecture-6This lecture traces the development of joinery as a method for constructing furniture from medieval times to the end of the 17th century and concludes with a comparison of its method with that of cabinet-making which was to supersede it particularly in respect of the more expensive and fashionable items being produced in the post- Restoration era. Carpentry, joinery and cabinet-making are familiar, but often misunderstood, terms and NADFAS audiences have often commented on how helpful they found this lecture as an aid to appreciating furniture more fully.
