I took a class in Shaker box making from John Wilson.

I really enjoyed the class.

I just signed up for a week long class at the Northwest Woodworking Studio school in Portland, OR. The class is in July with Chris Schwarz. I’m looking forward to it, but it’s still a long way away. There are several other schools I would like to go to someday. I’ll try and put together a list. For now the Northwest Woodworking Studio, is only a few hours drive, which makes it a little more convenient.

Hi Betsy. I will be interested in what you think about this. I have looked at their listing and it seems to be very popular. The school is a little over an hour’s commute but I haven’t worked up the initiative on signing up for any of the classes.

Hope you enjoy it.

I took the one-week “Curves and Veneers” class at Inside Passage School of Fine Woodworking. I loved it and would really like to go back. If you like James Krenov’s work I highly recommend it. I really liked Vancouver and Roberts Creek, BC too.

I’ve been looking at the classes at Kelly Mehler’s school too. I’d like to take a class with Brian Boggs, and it seems like that’s where he usually teaches.
