Registration is now open at Kelly Mehler’s School of Woodworking for the 2013 season, where I will be teaching two classes. On June 3-7, I’ll be teaching a class on Roorkhee Chairs. And on July 20-21, I’m teaching a weekend class on building precision layout tools.

The Roorkhee Chair class is going to be particularly interesting because of the leatherwork involved. We’ll have an industrial “walking foot” machine with us and riveting equipment so that students can make a very high-quality chair. I think you’ll find the leatherwork skills easy to pick up because a lot of the basics are the same (think: sharpening).
And the layout tool class is always fun – a little inlay, a Roubo try square and a very useful straightedge.
My 2013 teaching schedule takes me far and wide this year – Australia, Canada, Washington state, Connecticut and more. When all the details are final I’ll post a complete schedule.
