Whereas we now have several chevalets here on Lj’s and
whereas we do refer to a “chevalet club” and
Whereas we are unlikely to actually have a real meeting,
I am proposing that we use this forum thread as an ongoing “virtual meeting” of the said club.

There are no rules so far and I’m not about to make any but I would suggest that the clubhouse be open to anyone who owns, wants to own or is in any way interested in chevalets and that it be used to discuss, teach, learn and share any and all advice, knowledge or information about the this fine tool.

Any new business?

Hey Paul maybe we can all do a hang out in Google from our shops or something of that nature. I have been spending more time at Wood Central and less here, nice bunch of guys. I’m relatively sure Martin and his group will not entertain a spin off sit for us. I tried a few years ago to get them to do something of that nature and they were totally against it. Whatever you do I’m in.

As the grand instigator and chief researcher for lost marquetry pieces, count me in. I currently have a stable of 7 chevalets. As the woodworkers who speak English have a little trouble with the word, “chevalet” (not the car), I suggest we call them “chevys” and refer to them in their metric size. Thus, I am the owner of a 54 chevy, 55 chevy, 57 chevy (“frankenstein”) 58 chevy, 59chevy, 60 chevy, and my personal steed, the 61 chevy.

Just a note, by the end of the year, Marc Adams will have 8 chevys at his school!

PS: I am also a European trained chevy mechanic.

Paul, I’m all excited about the new car club. I have 2 Chevalets and a Ford….. Just kidding. I’ve been intrigued about this since you started creating with them. I’m gonna sit over here in the corner and maybe learn something…..

Patrick will you be teaching at Mark Adams school? Franklin, IN would be a lot more affordable for me although I like your set up and the music that you play. What artist was it that you and Patrice were disagreeing about being a jazz artist? I am putting together a CD set for my shop and I loved the ones you all were playing.

While I don’t have a chevalet . . . yet . . . I do hope to eventually add one to my workshop. In the meantime, I feel that there is a lot that I will be able to learn from this type of group discussion, explanations, and demos.
I’m in.

Well I guess by Patrick’s definition, I am the proud owner of a 55 Chevy.

First order of business: I nominate Paul for President of this fine club, and Patrick as Chairman of the Board.

Can I get a second?

O and I second it Matt …

Paul, put me down for a “want to build/own”. I’ll gladly be the little church mouse.

Welcome aboard Patrick. I was hoping you’d drop in.

I guess I have the newest wheels in the crowd, tall drink of water that I am.
I own a pair of 64’s ( That was the year they replaced the stretcher with a foot), one in Arizona sun dried Douglas Fir and one in native B.C. Garry Oak. I’ve also built one for a friend.

I will second the Chairman of the Board motion by Mathew and just say “thanks” to everyone for all the early interest. I think we can exchange lots of ideas and information here.

Shall we do photos?

Paul, this is wonderful. Keeping the older ways alive
My interest is purely to drool, I think the actual Chevy’s
Just look awesome.
Good luck with the group

Great idea Paul. I will be eavesdropping while I learn and who knows, maybe there will be a chevy in my future?
