Alden House ΒΌ Scale Rope Bed Model                                        Oct., 2018       Tom Shirley

The Guild entered into the service of the arts when the Guild was contacted by he Alden House Museum.  A special request was made and Tom Shirley answered the call and the request.

Tom volunteered to build a replica in 1/4 scale of a rope bed to be used for docents and visitors for demonstration purposes.  The scale model would be used to demonstrate how the rope bed could be adjusted for different levels of support by tightening or loosening the support rope.

Besides woodworking, Tom has a special interest in the Alden house.  He has been told he is a descendant of John and Priscilla Alden.  Besides that, Tom can say one of his woodworking efforts is a museum piece!  Read his story here.
