Ok, so A1Jim and I were catching up on things, and a thought crossed my mind, if you could live anywhere and the ultimate woodshop, and just happened to call it “Woodtopia” what would your vision of this be?
Deep in the woods of the great northwest, close to nature off the grid? Over in the Adirondacks so you could sell your creations to the wealthy folks of the city? Or would you become a hermit and not share your treasures with anyone (except the folks here on Lumberjocks of course)
Here’s a start of my vision: it would be a large place surround by large trees, with a HUGE covered workshop that would have plenty of spaces for people to come and work on whatever project they wanted. This way ideas could flow freely in the community and inspire everyone.
I’ve seen a PBS special about glass blowing that has a community like this, its a great learning center and after watching it, I’ve put it on my “Bucket List”.
Ok so everyone send in your dollar, so we can start buying up property somewhere and build this Woodtopia!
