COLLABORATION: Massachusetts State House Library Tables

By | January 13, 2015

The spirit of collaboration came together Lumix-07641-Oedelbeautifully in a recent project for the Massachusetts State House Library.  The task: to restore an original elliptical table, build a new identical to the original, and then design and build a round table that would fit between the other two  all within a short period of time.  Richard Oedel and his Fort Point Cabinetmakers shop joined forces with the North Bennet Street School, Robert Mussey Associates, and our own Greg Brown who did the carving on the legs for the new table.

At one point, there were 10 people working on the project and it all came together flawlessly just in time for an Opening Ceremony at the Library in late November.
