Mr. Steve Latta

The first person I would like to acknowledge as a master in his field is Steve Latta. Mr. Latta is a furniture making teacher in the Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, in Lancaster, PA. He is a contributing author to Fine Woodworking Magazine.

 
 
 
 

The subject of the main article was building a Federal style card table. The woodworking techniques used in the article were fairly advanced, and very well presented, but the work shown in the Master Class is simply amazing.

He did a follow up article in the Master Class section of the same issue, (FWW # 180), on Federal Style, stringing and banding. The patience involved in this type of work is nothing short of amazing. His ability to convey and illustrate the techniques, are well received. This is an area I've often wondered how they accomplished such delicate work back in the eighteenth century. It is also an area of woodworking I am interested in pursuing,

Since this period is of great personal interest to me, I'm always on the lookout for articles and pictures which will help me understand the behind the scenes work being done, to achieve the final results. Over all this is a beautiful project, which was very well executed by Mr Latta. Bravo

End of this tribute to my kind of nut, Mr Steve Latta.
