Thomas E. Wisshack (1949-2014) was born in Macomb, IL to Dr. Eric and Lina Wisshack. At a young age Tom salvaged scrap lumber from building sites to build a clubhouse and a lemonade stand, rarely being seen without a hammer and saw. As a teenager he apprenticed with woodworker Mr. Snyder. The family moved to Galesburg, IL while Tom was in high school and he continued gaining knowledge of restoration. He made several trips to Switzerland, Germany and England where he studied period furniture. He also studied and worked in restoration methods using hand tools. At his uncle's shop in Basel, Switzerland, he learned gilding and frame making. Tom was an artist-in-residence at Austin Peay University in Tennessee for a summer. He was an artist-in-the-school in Galesburg for several years, teaching youngsters basic woodworking skills. He also taught at the Quaker High School in Iowa City for a period of time. Although Tom was known primarily for his antique furniture restoration, he also built many period reproduction pieces using mostly hand tools. He also enjoyed painting, jewelry making, ceramics, wood carving and making whimsical pieces.  Tom wrote numerous articles for the magazines Fine Woodworking, Woodwork and Popular Woodworking. He also answered questions from readers of Popular Woodworking, in a regular column called "The Finishing Forum."
       The pieces we are offering are the only pieces of Tom's work that will be available for sale.
