goes out with a Lamb. David Lamb.

That’s right, next week (OK so it’s April)... to quote from the Library’s newletter:

Furniture master David Lamb’s slide presentation chronicles his experiences as a craftsman, from his life at the Canterbury Shaker Village to apprenticeship with a European master, study at design school, and ownership his philosophy as a designer-craftsman able to “speak” multiple historical design languages.

Just when I was getting a teeny bit jealous of Ethan’s recent opportunity to spend a little time with a couple big names in woodworking. :)

Wow Scott. What a wonderful opportunity. I find that those sorts of things just get my woodworking blood flowing for weeks and months. That will certainly energize you for the summer I would think. I am envious. Soak up every last word!

What a great, informative and inspirational slideshow/lecture from not just a member of, but a founding member of the NH Furniture Masters assn! A great public speaker, definately passionate about what he does. Here’s a guy who got to live with the shakers, and he will sketch out his projects full size and mull them over for weeks if not months (if he can) just to get everything right! Saw great pieces in (and inpired by) several different styles. Chippendale, Shaker, Contemporary, Baroque…. I even saw a couple great projects that he collaborated with artisans of other disciplines incorporating iron, stone or brass. One I recognized from an article in FWW!

Sorry jocks, no photos to speak of :( I had my shirt and my camera, but I’d already stretched my “lunch” hour past two hours and I had to fly.

Pleased with the attendance, I have a hunch the library will start hosting more of these.
