Own a Piece of History!
Upper Bucks County Technical School cabinet making instructor Michael Kenny has stated that using wood from the bridges gives students the opportunity work with lumber that has hardened and changed over time.
The tables are a traditional trestle design; the side and coffee tables are more of a Shaker style. They employ mortise and tendon joinery, a woodworking technique found today only in high quality pieces. That technique, combined with a sturdy 2-inch thick tabletop results in heirloom quality pieces of furniture.
The monies earned are split between the Upper Bucks County Technical School and the Bucks County Covered Bridge Society. The students use the money to pay for their annual trip to Williamsburg, Va., where they will spend time working in the Colonial cabinet shop. The Covered Bridge Society uses the money to fulfill their mission statement to protect, preserve and promote covered bridges.
