This won’t probably apply to most of you, but on the off-chance any fellow LumberJocks live in the US MidWest, I thought I’d post this:

The Saint Louis Woodworker’s Guild will host a weekend of woodworking instruction taught by Frank Klausz. Mark your calendar for Saturday/Sunday, March 17/18, 2007 for this exciting event. Topics to be covered will likely include:
Saturday – joinery (hand-cut dovetails, mortise-and-tenon, sliding dovetails, etc.)
Sunday – Wood finishing (how to apply various wood finishes; shellac, oil, French polishing, finish-the-finish, etc.

Klausz was educated in the Hungarian trade school system, MUM No. 306, Woodworkers Section School. He graduated as a journeyman cabinet maker in 1959. He is president, owner, and operator of Frank’s Cabinet Shop, Inc., specializing in fine furniture reproductions and custom architectural fixtures. His clients include New Jersey State House, Newark Museum, Zimmerly Art Museum, numerous public and private corporations, Malcolm Forbes’ Residence, Charles Engelhard, Ester Johnson of Johnson & Johnson, Christine Todd Whitman, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and several law offices.

Frank gives woodworking seminars throughout the USA and Canada. Locations include: Western Ohio Woodworker’s Club, OH, Long Island Woodworker’s Club, NY, Winterthur Museum, DE, Bucks County College, PA, and the Northern Alberta Woodcrafter’s Guild, Edmonton, Canada.

Frank Klausz has created five videotapes on various aspects of woodworking to educate beginners and professionals alike. He is a contributing editor of American Woodworker magazine, an author of articles in Fine Woodworking, and a widely respected teacher and judge of woodworking in juried competitions.

Fee Schedule: The fee for this workshop is currently $160. This fee covers workshop participation, two simple lunches, and coffee and snacks both days of the workshop. Checks for registration should be made out to the St. Louis Woodworkers’ Guild and sent to:

Mike Sistek
201 N. Elkton St.
Okawville, IL 62271-2145

Checks can also be given directly to Mike at SLWG Meetings, which take place at 7:00 PM on the third Thursday of each month, at Woodcraft of St. Louis.

There are currently only 13 openings left for this event. They will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

I envy those of you in the northern/northeastern states. You guys get to have woodworking classes, the best woodworking stores, etc. I watched one of, Frank Klausz’s video’s making dovetails by hand. He was fast and accurate! I believe he’d give a router and dovetail jig a run for the money. Enjoy the seminars for me!!

Our woodworking guild is blessed with an activity chair who has lined up guest lecturers for the next year or so. Last March, he brought down Marc Adams for a two day seminar, and the price was very similar (actually, it was only $100 or so for guild members who paid before the end of December).

If you aren’t a member of a local woodworking guild, I highly recommend you join one. If there aren’t any in your area, then I’d seriously consider starting one.
