During my time in Thailand, 2 more big woodworking events happened for me.

First, with the help of Facebook, I met a fellow Lumber Jock named, Mark Gipson. He lives near Bangkok, and we had a great dinner together to get to know each other and talk about woodworking.

I also showed him the following amazing photos. I was in wood carvers heaven… These pics were taken at a location where more than 20 expert carvers make the most amazing pieces you could imagine. Also amazing furniture designs. The pics will speak for themselves.. enjoy!

Fantastic carvings. Very interesting to see how they paste on the pattern and carve right through it. Never seen that before.
