My name is Brian Mercke and I live in Louisville, KY. I can tell you all you need to know about Jefferson Woodworking Company becasue my family started it many years ago. When the Mercke's came to this county from Germany, they broght with the the art of making table slides. They found Jefferson Woodworking and the rest is history. Unfortunatly the company went our of business about 10 years ago, but there is lots of furniture still out there.
