Peleg Weeden was a silversmith who worked in North Kingstown, but he is known to have owned a chest of joiner's tools which raises the possibility that he may have made the Pembroke table RIF6555, which was owned by Benjamin Fowler, who became Weeden's father-in-law.(1) Weeden may also have made the chest of drawers (RIF6692) that probably belonged to his wife Mary Fowler Weeden. The drawer dovetails appear to be by the same hand as those on the Pembroke table.
