Kudos to 489TAD….I also find myself as the widow of a master period furniture maker and the daunting task of finding homes for a seemingly endless supply of tools, equipment and keepsakes. Any suggestions on a good forum for sales other than Craigslist or Ebay?????.I have Windsor chair and period furniture templates as well that would be an atrocity to just throw away. Located in Georgia…Thanks for any suggestions/help

I’d first look for local woodworking clubs or guilds.

Do a web search on key terms like period furniture, wood turning, furniture making, furniture maker, hand tool, traditional woodworking, etc. That may help find them.

Another source would be a local woodworker store, like Rockler or Woodcraft. Perhaps even a good local hardware store. The proprietor/manager/employees (if you’re lucky) may be able to give you a point of contact.

These clubs/guilds will probably give you the most appropriate buyers. They have the respect, skills, and probably wherewithal to purchase, use, and cherish what your late husband collected. Best of luck!

Cheers!
