Andy Chidwick is another furniture maker that I know and recently he stopped by my shop on his way to The Woodworking Shows. He is giving demonstrations and seminars on creating sculpted furniture.
Although the time was much too short, Andy & I had a great visit. We even had time to get in a little video together for him to share what he would be doing at the show. You can see the entry & video interview here.
We also traded shirts & hats that we each have to offer. Occasionally he sends me a picture of my hat at some well-known location like Graceland.
Today he sent a picture of my American Craftsman Workshop hat with someone we all know -Tommy MacDonald! I just thought that was very cool:)
If you get a chance, be sure to make it to The WoodWorking Shows. You will meet great guys in person like Andy Chidwick and Chuck Bender. They are truly generous individuals sharing the knowledge of woodworking.
They have the spirit of true American Craftsmen.
Your friend in the shop,
