Location: Indiana

I am 37 and enjoy woodworking when I have time. Seems with two kids in baseball / softball, time gets a little scarce. Me and my wonderful wife are huge baseball fans! I enjoy sawing logs on my Woodmizer and hanging out with my friends over at The Woodwhisperer. Go CUBS! and TINCAPS (single A ball)

Hey Jeff,
What part of Indiana do you live in? How was the Marc Adams school? I’ve been thinking about taking a class at Kelly Mehler’s school in Berea, KY.

Hey JP,

I am in the extreme NE corner of Indiana. From my house in Indiana, you can actually drive southeast and go to Michigan! As far as the Marc Adams School, there is nothing bad about that place. If you get a chance, go there, you won’t be disappointed I guarantee it!

Have a great weekend.

-- Jeff, Indiana

Thanks for the welcome. I love seeing more woodworkers from Indiana. I’m a transplant from South Dakota, but grew up on a farm in Iowa. So I feel like I’m home. We get to Fort Wayne fairly often, my stepsons love the skatepark so we usually try to hit it once a month during the summer. I hope it’s okay if I make you one of my buddies!

Take care!

No problem on the buddy thing. I was going to tell you that I teach handcut dovetails and plane making at Woodcraft in Fort Wayne in case you ever have the desire. Also there is this thing on March 15th here in Fort Wayne called “woodfest”. It is a big woodworking type demostration and usually attracts about 300 people total. I have been asked to give a 75 minute presentation on that. If you go to and search for the Fort Wayne Store’s webpage, it will be under “demos” and you can read about it. Hope you can make it sometime!
