Peach State is a local chapter of Society of American Period Furniture Makers. We host two meetings annually. Our focus is on period furniture mostly of American origin.
We have been fortunate to be able to bring in some nationally recognized presenters including SAPFM Cartouche Award winners. Most of our meeting have a weekend presentation followed by an optional hands on workshop on the following Monday and Tuesday.
We have an extensive library of photos and videos from previous meetings including instructors like Al Breed, Steve Latta, Will Neptune, Tony Kubalak, Mickey Callahan, Ron Young, Phil Lowe and Freddy Roman.
Check our gallery of member's work and our events section for upcoming meetings. Also, you can sign up for our periodic newsletter with announcements of upcoming activities under "Contact Me".

Net Fee for Weekend and for Monday Session will be $85!
As most of you know, we operated on a zero balance budget at the local Chapter level. As such, we must estimate our fees collected to cover the expenses. That means typically we build a buffer into the weekend fee based on our estimate of attendees.
Well, we have had an overwhelming good response to the tall clock event. At this time we are going to be able to return $40 to each attendee, making your final cost $85 for the two day weekend event and $85 for the Monday event.
For simplicity of bookkeeping, we will continue to collect $125 so that process of returning funds will be easier.and not require us to keep track of different payments.
Our spring 2017 program will feature the return of Jeff Headley and Steve Hamilton. Jeff and Steve will focus on tall clock construction and variations on techniques and designs during the period. Jeff and Steve were the first presenters to come to Peach State and we look forward to their return in March. More details available on "Details on Upcoming Event" tab.
As a standard practice, both Peach State SAPFM and the Woodworkers Guild of Georgia normally require participants to be members before attending the Guild Symposium or the major SAPFM spring and fall events.
While many of you are members of both the Guild and SAPFM, some are not. Peach State SAPFM and the Woodworkers Guild of Georgia have worked together this year to offer both our groups a chance to participate in both group's event whether you are a member or not. This will allow SAPFM members to attend the Peter Gedrys finishing event at the same fee as a member of the Guild. And it will allow Guild members to attend the Tall Clock program at the same fee as a member of SAPFM. Learn more on our "Details on Upcoming Event".
Both Events will be held at Woodcraft on Holcomb Bridge Road in Alpharetta, GA
