Abstract

President Carter made this coffee table from old pine lumber from a barn. The wood was salvaged from an old horse trough. Today, the table is used in the Carter home in Plains, Georgia, lovingly placed in the den and used for informal meals. Noted features are butterfly joints across the top surface that were used to join the two boards. The craftsmanship and furniture construction of President Carter is part of a 3D digital and archival program being undertaken by the Digital Heritage and Humanities Collections in the University of South Florida Libraries in collaboration with the Carter Family, the National Park Service, and the Friends of the Jimmy Carter Historical Park. Today, the piece is part of furnishings in the Carter home in Plains, Georgia.
