In a couple of weeks I get to take part in a week of dovetailing with Frank Klauz at Kelly Mehler’s School of Woodworking in Berea, Kentucky. I could not believe my luck when I saw that Frank’s class still had a spot in it when I finally decided I could do a school this year. I’ve understood that Frank is a wonderful teacher and is a joy to just talk to. Besides hoping to learn a little woodworking, I’m very hopeful that I’ll get a chance to hear Frank talk a little bit about how the apprenticeship program worked when he was a kid. It’s a good chance to learn a little history first hand.
In anticipation of the class I thought I’d open up this blog to possible questions you might have that I may be able to squeeze into the conversation with Frank.
I’m sure I’ll be blogging about the class – and will try to include any answers I may get.
