From listener Jeremy Hopkins”
“I know you have provided a great service, and have spent time “perfecting” the art of woodworking – at least as much as anything fluid is ever perfected – but I had a question concerning what you felt were the three styles of furniture that every woodworker should attempt, if not feel that they have achieved some level of “mastery” over. Yes, I realize this can open a can of worms as to what constitutes mastery, but that is not the field of this request. I’m more concerned with starting points than ending points at this particular moment. Should a woodworker attempt Stickley, or Federal, or perhaps some other style? Or does it remain in the best interest to rarely venture outside of the Shaker realm?”
