Massachusetts Furniture Day
Massachusetts Furniture Day was proclaimed on September 17 in a ceremony at the State House. The proclamation, read by State Representative Byron Rushing was the kick off a 14-month celebration of four centuries of Massachusetts furniture. State senators and representatives were presented with reproduction furniture finials made by NBSS faculty member Steve Brown CF ’90. (Rushing is pictured holding one of the finials with Steve Brown)
NBSS trained woodworkers are participating in several events associated with the Four Centuries of Massachusetts Furniture project. View the calendar on the project’s excellent website.
