After leaving North Carolina, my wife and I headed up to Williamsburg, VA. This was the first time either of us had been to Colonial Williamsburg. We both have a love of history and wanted to see how it compared to our beloved Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. I was especially looking forward to all of the historic trades. As can be expected of a woodworker, I spent time in all of the wood related shops. I was able to talk with the joiners, carpenters, and cabinetmakers. I also took photos of furniture from most of the other buildings. I can’t think of much to say about it other than it was extremely hot, the food at the taverns was awesome, and I would love to build a timber frame structure at least once in my life. Just not when it’s 115 degrees outside. I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
