Monitor Millwork, D. R. Harding

With a passion and spirit for preserving the stories of old, Don Harding truly excels in his knowledge of the woodworking and window making craftsmen of the past.

 
 

Preserving the Past

Having long found the past to be more interesting than the present or the future it was natural for Don to gravitate towards an interest in preservation. Starting window making in 1979, by 1983 he was collecting and using period machinery to manufacture heritage millwork.

Traditional Glory

He continues today to make traditional sash, doors, and moulding. His large collection of late19th and early 20th Century machinery, tooling, and techniques allows him to assist in preserving homes and institutions of the period while also preserving the traditional skills and knowledge required to reproduce authentic vintage millwork. He regularly shares his experience with mill workers and interested persons nationwide.
