Now this might be a bit premature..but I am very excited.. I signed up to take a seminar with Paul Schurch..who is a world renowned marquetry/veneer craftsman (google paul schurch to see his designs and website). This gentleman was referred to me by Lee Jesberger.. And I have e mailed Paul to discuss taking his class.. Now im not sure if I mentioned this before..but I have been declared legally deaf by the state of Calif.. And taking educational classes has been difficult. I can hear sounds..and read lips and my speech fine I graduated from school with honors..but as of late..my hearing has been horrible.. I was very scepticle to pay upwards of 500 dollars for a class that I couldn’t hear in.. So I e mailed the owner of the woodcraft store where the seminar will be held and discussed my concerns with the owner..and she in turn discussed it with Paul who insisted on speaking with me to assure that he will make sure I am near him and that I hear what he’s saying and will make sure I’m aware of what’s being done.. Basically he’s going out of his way to help me.. So in February 20 and 21..I will be in his class learning to do veneering and marquetry and will be making a jewelry box for my sweety in his class.. So I have 5 months to wait..but I had to share this with my friends @ Lumberjocks..
