I hope the new year finds you all well and prospering in your woodworking endeavors. I know its been a while since you’ve heard from me on this blog. The past year has been a season of change for me, and it’s been difficult to find the time to write. I’m writing now to let you know that I’m passing the baton, at least for now, in regards to updating this blog.
I’ve reluctantly decided to temporarily step away from my involvement with the school in order to work through some personal family issues. I will miss teaching and I will miss seeing all of you but I feel this is the best option for me at this time. I am deeply appreciative to the school coordinators who are all my close friends, in their understanding and support of my decision. We are all hoping to work together again soon.
Many of you have gotten a chance to work with Jonathan Schwennesen. Jonathan served an apprenticeship with me several years ago and we have worked together teaching for several years. He is extremely qualified to teach any of the classes and will continue doing so. Stan Beckworth will also continue teaching. Stan is the one who taught me how to cut my first dovetails when I was 11 years old!
Jonathan and Stan will be keeping you guys up to date on this blog with class news and class updates, so please stay tuned.
Thank you to all that have attended my workshops and I hope to see you all soon.
Best wishes for the year ahead,
