I’ll be doing a demonstration of staked joinery at 3 p.m. this Saturday at the DesignBuildCincy show at Music Hall. So if you’d like to see me build a stool in an hour (or less) please stop by.
The DesignBuildCincy show is an interesting affair, bringing together furniture makers, home remodelers, architects, artists and suppliers in a show for customers who appreciate craftsmanship and good design. (Here’s a list of vendors.)
I was asked to exhibit my work at the show, but I simply don’t have enough furniture in stock to manage a booth. So instead, they asked if I would give a short talk.
The show is located in the beautiful and newly restored Music Hall in Over the Rhine. I have been aching to see the completed work, which sought to restore many of the details of the hall when it was constructed in 1878. Plus, if you know anything about Over the Rhine, it’s a great place to get a meal or just stroll around the historic buildings.
Hope to see you there. Hope to see someone there – there’s nothing sadder than making a stool for an audience of none.
