2 Spots Available in the ‘Hammer in Hand’ Class

Because of a cancellation, there are two spots open in my “Hammer in Hand” class at The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship on July 16-20 in Rockport, Maine.

The class is $695 and we will build three (yes, three) projects: A Moxon double-screw vise in maple, a very useful shooting board and the dovetailed Schoolbox in Eastern white pine, my favorite project from “The Joiner and Cabinet Maker.”

For more details on the class, or to sign up, click here.

The class is during a particularly fun time to visit Maine because the awesome Lie-Nielsen Open House occurs during the Friday and Saturday before the class. The factory is a short drive from the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship. I’ll be at the open house, as will people far more talented, including Chuck Bender, Christian Becksvoort, Tico Vogt and Matt Bickford. (Speaking of Mr. Bickford, we will be showing off the galley proofs of his upcoming book “Mouldings in Practice.” Yes, it’s done.) Get all the details on the open house event here.

So do what I did: Blow off your job and come to Maine next month. Or as Evelle Stokes says in “Raising Arizona”: “H.I., you’re young and you got your health, what you want with a job?”

    I am tickled pink that I will be at the open house also. Now if I can only talk Dawn into a few more days…) Can’t wait for Matt’s new book.

  2. Wes Smith says:

    So tempting. The Misses and I are going to be in Booth Bay during that time. But knowing her she has the entire time planned out.

    I just visited LN and the school on June 18 when I was in Maine for my nephew’s graduation from residency. I sure wish I could go back for the class! Looking forward to making the tool chest in Kentucky a couple weeks later, though!
