Old Salem Klingspor Tour Photos


On January 24th, management and store managers of Klingspor's Woodworking Shop visited  Old Salem and the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts. Below are some photos of the visit.


Brian Coe (right) of the Old Salem staff  talks with the group about Old Salem's collection of pre-Civil 
War workbenches.  In foreground is the inspiration for the currently-popular Moravian Workbench.  
These benches are not regularly on display at the Museum.

Tour participants were able to get good views of the underside of benches on storage racks.  
At right Coleman Fourshee of Klingspor's Woodworking Shop photographs a german style bench.

Coleman Fourshee (rt) of Klingspor's Woodworking Shop pulls out a drawer of the 
Leinbach bench as Paul Rolfe also of Klingspor looks on.  The Leinbach bench was 
used by several generations of cabinetmakers in the Leinbach family and was made prior to 1833.

Daniel K. Ackermann, Curator of MESDA Collections, points out construction 
details of a drawer from the Kentucky chest on frame at right.

Robert Leath, Chief Curator and Vice President of collections and research at Old Salem, talks 
with the group about some of his favorite pieces in the collection.

In the Old Salem Joiner’s Shop Nat Norwood, Director of Historic Trades, shows tour group a supply of examples of old nails. The type of nail used can often be helpful in dating a piece of furniture or a modification.

Burial Urns for Veterans

A COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROJECT OF ncwoodworker.net


The BURIAL URNS FOR VETERANS PROJECT, was initiated in 2015, here in North Carolina. The purpose of the project, is to insure every veteran, whose cremains are interred, in any State, or National Cemetery in North Carolina, is provided with a quality wooden burial urn.


When it was learned that many veterans cremains, were being interred in cardboard boxes, and in other even less honorable containers in North Carolina Veterans Cemeteries, members of ncwoodworker.net, banded together, to make, and provide, free of charge, wooden burial urns.

Families of veterans who arrive at any of our N.C. State or National Veterans Cemeteries, bringing the cremains of a veteran for internment there, need only ask at the cemetery office prior to the time of internment, and a burial urn will be provided, free of charge, for your veteran's cremains. The cemetery staff may assist you in placing the ashes in the urn.

ncwoodworker.net members are proud to be able to provide this final act of respect and honor to those men and women, who have so selflessly, served our great nation to preserve our freedom.
