Build a Handsaw with Mike Wenzloff - June 2011

This post should really be titled "I came, I sawed, I conquered."

From 2011-06-12 Build a Handsaw

It is always a joy to have Mike Wenzloff come and share his knowledge of handsaws at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking.

Mike will be back in Port Townsend for the Wooden Boat Festival in September 2011. He'll be joining us as one of the presenters at the Woodworking Stages during the Festival. We'll be posting more details soon.

Greene and Greene Details II with Darrell Peart - June 2011

Darrell inspires and encourages his students. I knew this was going to be a good class - more than half the students had arrived by 8:45 and there was a real buzz in the room before the class started.

From 2011-06-05 Greene & Greene Details II

We'll not be offering these Details classes in 2012 - but we're working with Darrel to offer a week long project class in the spring along with a weekend design class in the Fall - watch this space.

Woodworking for Women - June 2011

Matha Collins, yet again, inspires and enthuses a diverse crowd of women from around the country.

From 2011-06-04 Woodworking for Women

From Florida, Texas and Alaska - three of these women traveled to Port Townsend to take Martha's Woodworking for Women class. We're deeply honoured that they chose Martha and the Port Townsend School of Woodworking to take the class. It is also a great tribute to Martha's abilities as teacher that they gave us comments like:
"I was thinking about the class as I drove home and decided I did not add enough adjectives to my paper response. Actually Martha was terrific, wonderful, funny and great! Besides just learning the basics, she gave us tons of tips on how to make things easier or better. It was well worth the money.
I was so impressed at how your benches were set up, tools available, etc. 
It was a great experience and I will certainly be back for more."
Thanks for the encouragement Debbie.
