    thanks Eastern NC woodworkers!

    I wanted to thank everyone who came to the 'meet and greet' last night. We talked about the mechanics of forming a guild, goals, potential issues, names, machinery, member benefits, etc. Now that the conversation has been started we have a lot to think about. We agreed to hold a second meeting...

    very nice write up from Mary May!

    Mary May taught a fantastic 2 day carving class at The North Carolina Furniture School recently and shared this write up with me so I thought I would share it with you. She was delightful to host and I look forward to having her teach another workshop next year!

    Woodwright's School

    Just thought I'd share my experience last weekend at Roy's school. I was signed up for the class on Dovetails and Mortise and Tenon Joints as a birthday present from my better half (she rocks!). I have never attempted dovetails (read about 'em plenty, just never took the leap) but I have...
