NTAAC Members Doing Good with Hammers and Saws

The members of NTAAC comprise a wide range of skills, interests and activities. Last week Ron Siebler and his team of carpenters started the exterior preservation work on the Pilot Grove Church located on the grounds of the Dallas Heritage Village.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, while working on the south side of the bell tower they donned period clothing and...

...used period tools as well. There was also an area set up in front of the church that allowed the public an opportunity to work with some of the hand tools. Ron says drilling holes with the old bit and brace drill was the most popular tool of the day.

Thanks Ron for sharing, and to Drew Timmons for capturing it on film.

NTAAC loves to know what its member are up to, so if you have an event, project, interview, article... that is artifact centric, let us know about it.
