There are still a couple of spots available in my “Anarchist’s Tool Chest” class June 13-17 at the Woodworking School at Pine Croft, in gorgeous Berea, Ky. And, for this class, you can choose your chest size – big or slightly less big (the “traveling” size holds a goodly assortment of tools, too – but has room for only two sliding tills). At either size, you’ll get plenty of dovetailing instruction and practice, and you’ll leave with a nice chest, purpose-built for safe storage of your hand tools (or not-so-purpose built but still eminently suitable for blankets, or toys, or sweaters…).
The class fee, which includes the wood, is $1450. For more information, check out the class description here.
p.s. For those who don’t already know, Berea College bought Kelly Mehler’s Mehler’s School of Woodworking, so the classes are in that purpose-built shop that’s nestled into the foothills of the Appalachians, just south of Lexington, Ky., and close to Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill. In other words, there’s plenty to do around there in addition to the class, should you wish to make it a family getaway!

Unfortunately I am making American Girl scale chest of draws with Allen Breed that week… Even looks like it’s not sold out yet if anyone else is available.
Sigh, I already have too many trips planned this year to use more PTO (and pay the catsitter).
A word to the wise. If you EVER plan on taking your tools out of your shop and don’t have a couple of burly apprentices, opt for a couple of the smaller chests instead of one big one. Heaving that thing around can cause trouble.
Ask my physical therapist how I know this.
That’s a very good deal considering you get five days with a teacher and you walk out with a new chest. Wish I had the time.
