I’m teaching at two new schools this year, including my very first trip to the West Coast for the Port Townsend School of Woodworking in Washington for June. I’ll also be in Albany at the Northeastern Woodworkers Association for September.
The Port Townsend School, founded by noted author and ww’er JimTolpin, is sure to be a blast…I worked closely with the faculty to create two very cool classes: a 5-day saw making/sharpening/restoration and use class titled, ‘Saw Making Fundamentals’ and a 2-day weekend class called, ‘Build a Dovetail Saw’. Check out all the details here:
The Northeastern Woodworkers Association class will be ‘Saw Sharpening’ 101 on September 20th. If you’re interested, contact the school through their website: http://www.woodworker.org/aboutus.htm
I’ll also be teaching at CT Valley in Manchester, CT on May 17th. I’ve totally over-hauled and stream-lined my ‘Saw Sharpening 101′ class and it is better than ever. I’m a bit of a nut when it comes to teaching and I’m always pushing myself to make classes better and better. The new curriculum provides students with filing templates that greatly ease the learning process.

I’ve got lots of other exciting new projects for this year, and I’m finally digging out of my back-log of saw work. Stay tuned.
