It’s been a week of major honors for a couple of Pine Croft’s visiting instructors. Nancy Hiller graces the cover of the upcoming Fine Woodworking Magazine issue #281 with an article about building an Arts and Crafts chest originally designed by Ernest Gimson. Along with Nancy, Megan Fitzpatrick is also featured in Fine Woodworking with a piece about handwork and sawbench making. Congratulations to Nancy, Megan and Fine Woodworking Magazine for getting together to make the articles happen. I’m hoping a shop cat or two made it into the magazine as well.
Peter Galbert was just announced as the keynote speaker at the Lie Nielsen Open House this upcoming July 10-11, 2020. The folks at Lie Nielsen always put on a great event for their open house, inviting all woodworkers and interested parties to their main showroom in Warren, Maine to celebrate making, tools and community. The Maine midcoast in mid-July is a wonderful place to be. I went at every opportunity when our family lived a few miles down the road. I highly recommend it if you have the opportunity to attend.
Peter Galbert vists Pine Croft to teach a week-long Windsor chair class May 10-16.
Megan Fitzpatrick comes to Berea June 1-5 for a class on the Anarchist’s Tool Chest.
Nancy Hiller’s Voysey Two-Heart Chair class is slated for June 15-19.
