Furniture Intensive instructor Brian Reid is in the fellowship this month working on a piece which will be shown at The Gallery at Somes Sound this fall. The show will feature Brain's work alongside that of his woodworking students from the Maine Prison Program. Brian's project is being funded by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission.
Brian's work often features complex joinery, and this new piece is no exception. The bird mouth joint allows him to pillow all of the edges.
The front of the chest will feature Brian's signature parquetry patterns.
