As work and other obligations allowed, 18th-century Americans sought leisure in any number of endeavors, both high and low. Whether social in nature – entertainments like dance, sport, drinking, and gambling – or private – engaging intellectual curiosities or seeking rest – these activities were central to the overlapping cultures of early America. For those who could afford it, these pursuits often led to the shops where woodworking artisans crafted the material culture of such pastimes.
