ages ago whilst at woodward bros i did my first real piece, a walnut and cedar drinks cabinet after reading krenov's the fine art of cabinetmaking
the clients had accidentally killed a tree in their garden, had it bandsawn too thinly and left it to dry in the garage i had to use bill's sander to dimension it. the doors are contiguous. getting the image up meant learning some photoshop on which there was a little lesson a quatre
for the new workshop we are about to remake some stands he suggests. whatever happened to the two old sets i wonder
and today at the age of nearly 54 i finally ground something properly for the first time after adapting a jig he explains in the same book and i am about to learn honing. good grief
this after going on about how i wanted to teach the goobs sharpening
"To do good work year after year you need sharp tools, the sense of being at ease, and the feeling that things are going well."
fantastic craftsman and a great teacher
