Vinegar graining at the St- George Tucker House

Visiting Artisan at Colonial Williamsburg



Since 2010, I have been a visiting artisan at Colonial Williamsburg.  I set up a table in the old kitchen of the St. George Tucker house and for two or three hours, I demonstrate the Early American techinique of Vinegar Graining.

This past Sunday, November 17th, I demonstrated graining on small frames and jewelry boxes, showing many of the color combinations for graining.
