Woodworker: Larry GreweNeighbors Grewe and Corson talked about making this Pennsylvania secretary together for about four years before Corson, 90, convinced Grewe, in his early 70s, to go for it. Being the less-experienced furniture maker, Grewe was a bit reluctant to take on the challenge. “Then I realized that to work on it with a friend and neighbor would be a true learning experience and stretch my abilities,” he said. They chose cherry, because it is a bit less formal than the walnut used in the Lonnie Bird piece that inspired it (FWW #154, 155, 156). The piece is 21-in. deep by 38-1⁄2 in. wide by 85-in. tall; it is finished with tung oil. Photo credit: Aaron and Matthew Grewe
