I haven’t been posting very much , or at all in the past few months. often, I have been Incommunicato with everyone. Mostly because I have been living the dream, spending my time away at woodworking school.
Attending the craftsman program at inside passage school is a great experience. the value of the Instruction of RVN is immense, and added with the value of experience of my fellow students, well it has my previous skills and knoledge humbled.
Looking back on the year since I found lumberjocks, the changes have been great. I have become a full time woodworker. studied under two different masters, and increased my skills with every new project.
more-so, I look forward to the new year, new projects, learning veneering, marquetry, and parquetry. also , a gallery exhibit our schoolwork at Kozai Gallery in vancouver.
The pictures above are of a exercise piece we students each made a few months ago, it is of poplar with a coopered door, dovetailed drawer, and shopmade hinges and wallhangers(of brass). I was going to burn it, (as you would an exercise piece which you don’t sign) but I have need of some storage in the small cabinm I am renting while at school, so it survives for now.
Merry christmas and happy new year to all lumberjocks.
