Thomas Jefferson Tall Clock by Mike Torrente

(original made in Phila. c. 1812)

I noticed recently that you feathered some photos and text describing Colonial Period case furniture pieces. I am pleased that you connect early cabinetmaking with gun makers, because many of them, as you know, did both. I was a furniture maker for 27 years and specialized in Period style furniture, and I make BP guns for a hobby.  Now that I am retired, I just concentrate on making BP guns and studying the old ones.
