My son completed his Sack Back Windsor Chair class today at the Windsor Institute in NH and as you can see he had a great time. Great to be taught by Mike Dunbar the “Windsor Guru” and his fine staff, Fred Chellis and Don Harper. I am so proud of the way he handled himself in this class, working for 5 days through instruction and building. He is the youngest person to complete a Sack Back class at the Windsor Institute at the ripe old age of 11. Freddy was very attentive during demonstrations and took great notes; I may have to throw mine away and use his. At the risk of sounding like the proud father I can say he truly has a future in woodworking if he so chooses to pursue it… the kid’s got talent… he must take after his mom:). It was priceless to spend this time with him and I wouldn’t have traded it for anything. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed the class. You can check out the Windsor Institute blog for an update from the bench of Mike Dunbar.”www.thewindsorinstitute.com/blog/”
I would also like to mention that I met up with fellow Lumberjock RickL from Jackson,TN and took several pictures for him to share with his family. He is the guy shooting us the moon in the first picture. Congratulatons on your retirement! Rick enjoyed the class enough to be talking about attending another in May. It’s always great to meet people at these classes because you find out you have something in common with people from all walks of life. We had a student, Dongil, in the class from Korea who has a PhD in economics and teaches on the university level. He took some pictures of Freddy and will be sending them to us. He is also in the first picture behind Mike. To all of our benchmates…keep building those chairs!
