Small pieces - Large Grins!

Martha has been teaching our Woodworking for Women classes for the last two years and has been gently urging us to let her teach "Making Wooden Jewelry". The class ran last weekend at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking and was very impressive. Martha hauled in wonderful array of sanders, additional small bandsaws, epoxy and isocyanate (Superglue) glues, lots of veneer and boards of gorgeous wood. Much sawing, sanding a gluing up.

I dropped in on Sunday afternoon and everyone was begging (well asking) for more time in the shop; for longer and more courses next year. Those direct appeals will work. The new 2011 schedule should be out tomorrow and we'll add more of Martha's classes before we publish the final schedule.

Pictures say this better than words (as usual):

  1. Martha is clearly a professional in her field. The attention to detail and pure craftsmanship are evident in her work. Anyone who can learn from her is indeed priviledged.
