Yoshiko Yamamoto "Rose Garden" in a Baer frame
Yoshiko Yamamoto, Berkeley Rose Garden.
Berkeley Rose Garden framing details CraftsmanThe Arts & Crafts period (1880s-1920s) gave us some uniquely American designs, and one of the most persevering is the "Pegged Through Tenon" frame believed to have been first manufactured by Gustov Stickly for his Bungalow line of furniture. This Trough Tenon frame is one of the Vertical Grain Douglas Fir styles unique to Master Framemaker, Baer Charlton. VGDF is a very difficult wood to work and is best worked with very sharp hand tools instead of machines. The wood from this frame was salvaged from an old school house during it's reconstruction. Only hand saws, chisels, mallets, hand planes and scrapers were used in the construction of this frame. The pegs that secure the tenons are usually hand carved from ebony or elk and deer antler that is scrounged from the Oregon forest floor.
