« Part 1: The enrolment Part 2 of Furniture School series Part 3: The first class. »

Well folks it is getting nicer outside ( here in the great white north eh!) and the shop is now thawed enough to start some serious work. I just finished a series of skill building project and start furniture design school on Wednesday night . Not sure what to expect at this point but I am excited. Oh !I also just purchased a 12 ½ inches thickness planner and am loving it(Review to come.) Goodbye big box store over priced pre dressed lumber. I still do not have a project in mind for this course but I am leaning toward a Green and Green style something or another. I will keep you posted.

Jacques, it sounds like the fun is just beginning. Once you get the opportunity to work with rough lumber a whole new woodworking world opens up for you. And getting to a take a course like this is another wonderful opportunity. No wonder you are on an adrenaline high right now!! I just hope that you can get some rest tonight so that you will be in prime shape for the course tomorrow night. :)

I love going to woodworking school, I’ve been going for a week every year for about ten years now. After the first class I was hooked. Where are you going and who’s teaching the class? Don’t keep us in suspense!
