This past week, I continued to work on with the drawers for my little cabinet. The doussie, while a bit brittle, was really a delight to work, not hard to see why it was one of Jim's favourite woods. I have sketched a few pulls and I have begun looking at material for the stand.
We have begun to prepare the school and ourselves for the Craftsman and Resident Craftsman programs, which begin two weeks from this coming Monday. This year, we have a full compliment of students joining us from Japan, Belgium, Israel, Mexico, United States and Canada. Five of our students are returning for a second year of study with our completely revised Resident Craftsman program. Our wood room has been stocked with exciting new planks from around the world. During the final weeks of our break we will be tuning each of our machines and prepare the exercise material for the first few weeks of the program. It is an exciting time at Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinetmaking.
Yvonne and I would like to take this opportunity to invite all alumni of Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinetmaking to join us for first Elephants at our home on Friday September 16th 2011 at 5pm. Please join us for a potluck supper, as we present Jim's cabinet and welcome this year's class.
Our school and its programs are founded on and dedicated to the teachings of James Krenov. If you would like additional information, or would like to register please contact Yvonne.
