Shawn Graham needs to decorate the walls of his woodworking school, Wortheffort in Austin, Texas. So I cleaned the scanner of drool after dealing with the cover for “Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker!” and have four new posters for you.
These are all suitable for 18” x 24” at 600 dpi – just perfect for the poster-printing machine at Staples, Office Depot or your other-named office supply house.
The first poster, shown above, is of an original image I purchased about four years ago. No picture better sums up the craft for me. A good bench. A huge pile of debris. A pair of dividers. A deer-in-headlights look that can be fixed only by a beer.
The other three images were drawn by Charles H. Hayward and are from his “Recognising the Styles” series in The Woodworker magazine, which shows the stylistic development of a particular furniture form. Here we have posters on chairs, tables and sideboards.
I hope to see these in the bathrooms of woodworking schools everywhere – just like I used to find copies of the November 2009 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine in woodworking school bathrooms. A lot. Don’t know why.
