Warren in Lancaster, PA
In the 17th century if a woodworker had extra time to lavish on a piece, he embellished it with turnings, carvings, mouldings, scrollwork, inlay, and the like. Today we have workers who do very little of this. They instead sand out every little flaw and pronounce it fine furniture.

In the late 17th century there were more sawmills in New England than in England.
