It has been a fantastic week at Kelly Mehlers school of woodworking, our guest teacher was master cabinetmaker Frank Klausz. Frank is a excellent teacher who used dovetails as the cornerstone of a 5 day class but infused the class with so much more information that i will be in my shop at home working on these principals for the next few months! Kellys school is a must do for any woodworker looking to improve their understanding and skills. Frank is entertaining, the whole class would be laughing at his humorous views one minute and listening with complete attention to his every word the next.

Right now i am headed back to Alaska, miss my wife and shop but will add more when i get to detroit. Best regards to all.

I had planned to add more in detroit ( weak signal)and seattle ( not free) so waited until home. in fine woodworking i saw a beading tool for $70 but frank had one that was basically free.

this is one thing i noticed regularly, making the tool that was needed and it is one thing i really appreciate as you can see by my use of excess garlic jars from work.
