Gerry Jones gave a multi-media presentaion of what he has learned about wooden outdoor furniture. He began with selection of woods and why each would be used for an application. He emphasized how to design the articles to keep weather out of the end grain of the wood. Gerry then went on to explain a number of effective means of jointery and fastening the articles. Lastly Gerry took us on a virtual tour of the various structures he built in his back yard along with detailed in progress pictures of how the bridge and pergola were built. The tour really emphasized how to use design to integrate function into the form.
