When I talk to furniture geeks about my upcoming book, “Campaign Furniture,” they almost all have the same objection to a book on this style of furniture: “It’s interesting, but your readers won’t be able to get the hardware to make the pieces.”
Au contraire, mon petit chou.
Many of the better hardware sellers have campaign brasses in their stocklists. Talk to Orion Henderson at Horton Brasses – he put together a suite of hardware for my campaign secretary that was on the cover of Popular Woodworking Magazine last year.
Today Nancy Anderson, the owner of Londonderry Brasses, said she was adding several pages of campaign furniture brasses to her catalog. I used Londonderry Brasses for my latest campaign chest and could not be more pleased with the color and workmanship of the hardware.
You can contact Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-593-6239. In addition to the brasses shown here, Nancy has access to many others and – like Orion at Horton – will help track them down for you.
Several other catalogers carry campaign brasses, including Lee Valley. You just have to dig.
So, problem solved. I guess it’s OK to publish this book on campaign furniture.
