Thought I would let all the lumber Jocks know that there is A George Nakashima exhibit at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle WA. It’s a great show with lots to look at the only bad part is you cant take pictures.

I had never heard of him til you mentioned him. I just did a google image search. He was absolutely brilliant. Thank you for that!

I would love to see his works up close but they are on the wrong side of the country.

If I were in a few hundred miles of that exhibit, I’d be on my way.

Good stuff.

I did a quickie search and found he had 2 brothers. Anyone know if one of them was an electrician?
