I’m doing a research paper on the history of The Arts and Crafts Movement in America. I know all you wood working maniacs read books about the history of our beloved hobby and trade and I need ya’ll to let me know of any good sources. I know I had a book on Greene and Greene furniture but I can’t find it and I know that there was a fantastic article in one of the wood working mags last spring or summer about A&C but can’t remember which one. I have about a four foot stack of wood magazines that need to be organized. Anyway any help you could through my way would be great.

Thanks,

Tim

You might want to check out that history in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge Area. They have a rich history of art and craft.

You have to dig a little, but these sites have been up for a few years and have a lot of good articles dealing with handmade.


I agree with Kerux, Gatlinburg has a tight-knit artist community that I visit every year. Their web site is
