The Honest Brothers

This unique sign is used by the “Honest Brothers” at events and shows around the country. The Brothers, Ken Gahagan, David Hughes and Fred Threlfall are three extremely talented people who work on projects both individually and as a group.

As a team, ye Brothers display and demonstrate a number of eighteenth century crafts. David and Ken jointly produce historically accurate period furniture and woodwork. They create beautifully crafted pieces designed and executed in the finest eighteenth century manner. Whether it’s a lap desk, highboy, or a leather covered box, their attention to detail and historic accuracy is unsurpassed. David, Ken and Fred produced a writing desk for the CLA auction in 2006. David and Ken designed and built the walnut desk and Fred provided replicas of original eighteenth century maps that line the inside.

David and Ken have been featured previously. Fred’s work will be featured soon. The “Honest Brothers” can be seen at Cook Forest, Fort Pitt, Fort Frederick, Connor's Prairie and the CLA Show in Lexington. A.R.
