The North Bennet Street School has been a leading school in craftsmanship for over 125 years. The programs include Carpentry, Preservation Caprentry, Locksmithing, Bookbinding, Violin Making and Repair, Cabinet and Furniture Making, and Piano Technology.
I am attending the Cabinet and Furniture Making program, and I created this page to show some projects I have completed at school. My instructors are award-winning furniture makers, frequent contributors to Fine Woodworking magazine, and have their work on display in a number of museums. Lance was called the “Dean of Period Furniture” by Woodwork Magazine. http://www.woodwork-magazine.com/index.php/archives/495

The North Bennet Street School toolbox is such a legendary project that I have dedicated a separate page to it.
