I am always excited to meet up with another woodworker and especially another pro. The conversation seems to go to a whole other level, especially when both of us are equally passionate about the same things. Those things would be woodworking, design, and sharing the knowledge with other woodworkers.
Last night was just about as good as it can get when Andy Chidwick stopped by with his family at dinner time. He is an excellent craftsman, designer, and he is also passionate about sharing the knowledge.
Andy is at the beginning of a 4 month journey as he tours the country hitting all of The Wood Working Shows that will be visiting many of the major cities around the country. He gives demonstrations on creating sculpted furniture (think Sam Maloof but don’t limit it to that) and shares all of the knowledge he can in seminars.
So while the visit was short, we shot a quick video together for you to watch.
Andy is a genuinely great guy, woodworker, and family man. If you are planning on attending The Wood Working Shows be sure to catch him and his son giving demonstrations. Check on dates & schedule by visiting TheWoodWorkingShows.com.
Follow the Chidwick Family Adventure as recorded by Tano at travelpod.com (this should be an interesting perspective.)
I have been to The Wood Working Show in Columbus, OH when I was working out there. It was always a great day to see a lot of tool demo’s, catch a seminar, and pick up on special deals. Meeting up with Andy will make it even better. It is great to continually meet up with the best people in the world – Woodworkers!
