A simple joiner no more. It’s a huge world out there and I am expanding my little part of it.

A couple of weeks ago, I took a course on 16th century carving with Peter Follansbee. As a house-warming present Aaron Dibner-Dunlap got me a gift certificate for the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop and I put it use on a wood turning course with Mario Rodriguez. The class really was a revelation – there are so many design elements

I turned two french door openers – if the need ever arrises I can hold zombies out with style
