Thanks Damian…

I almost took a class from this group last summer so now I am bummed…on the sale flyer it says they are moving into a much smaller facility—-so does this mean that they will continue in some format??? Hopefully…

ANy jocks thinking of going this weekend?

I may try to go early in the morning…I am interested in the wood—-and have never looked at exotic woods…so would love to have help in selecting woods and getting a good deal…which I am sure I would based on the flyer…

Just let me know and I will check back here the next couple days…

thanks damian for alerting us…

Anyone know why they are moving to smaller facilities and closing the school?

Thanks Damian for letting us know.

It’s sure is sad to see this happening.

ya…me too…I wanted to go…one of those feelings—-though no money—-there could be some good deals and I feel like the people would have been honest in what they are selling…and maybe help them out to get on there feet…but in the end…when to a free demo in santarosa—-and spent money…

thanks for posting this though…on the link you provided they mentioned having things after the sale…so maybe some things left…

my main interest is in getting wood…for me it seems to be a very intimidating process…and hoped they would give good advice…
