Today’s main topic is a bit of history on the 1632 hearing between the Company of Carpenters and Company of Joyners of London, and a discussion on using nails in furniture work. See Peter Follansbee’s transcription of the 1632 court decision on his blog here. See this blog post for the list of nails that I recommended in the show.
