South Carolina has a long history of local cabinetmakers, who worked primarily to supply their surrounding communities with the furniture and implements needed in everyday life. While the industrial revolution saw the transition of much of this work to large, commercial operations, individuals continued to craft furniture distinct to their particular region. A Compass to Guide; South Carolina Cabinetmakers Today will focus on contemporary cabinetmakers, their regional differences and similarities, and explore the roots of their respective traditions.
