A reproduction of the orignal armonica made by Benjamin Franklin. Sound is made by rubbing a moistened finger along the edge of the spinning glasses. The only deviation is Lash’s use of electricity to work the instrument rather than the traditional foot pedal. The piece is made of white oak, spruce, fir, mahogany and mahogany veneer.

A modern take on a piece originally designed for military use. This campaign chest functions as a desk rather than the luggage/furniture conbination of its predecessors. The piece is made from maple and teak veneer along with plywood, white oak and brass. The finish is oil and shellac.

The furniture of Jefferson's Monticello is the topic of this year's Working Wood in the 18th Century conference, co-sponsored by Fine Woodworking and Colonial Williamsburg.
