The Schoolbox at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking

The reason I’m not answering your e-mails or phone messages this week is that I’m teaching the “Hammer in Hand” class at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking.

We’re building three projects this week – a shooting board/bench hook, a Moxon dovetailing vise and the Schoolbox from “The Joiner and Cabinet Maker” book. And with the pace that this class is on, we might have to add a fourth project.

With more than a day and a half left, most of the students are working on the moulding for the piece.

That’s not supposed to happen until tomorrow.

So I think we’ll carve some garden gnomes tomorrow. Can’t have too many garden gnomes.

    The plastic glue bottle in the glue pot looks all kinds of wrong.

    Here’s what happens when you get overrun by the garden gnomes

    Seriously, I didn’t think you indulged in carving

    Looks like some fine work being done. I hope we get to see those finished boxes at weeks end.

    mmmm! Ol’ brown “Death-stick”.I can smell it now…. I see you resolved your bad day with the petrified walnut. Pare-ing and swearing to get’er done.

    I am SOOOOOOO glad that you got so many shots of me…NOT…haha. But seriously, I am having the time of my life. I am so sad tomorrow is the end. Many many great memories were made this week. Oh, and I did some woodworking too. Thanks Chris!
