“It makes me happy that this small school intends to return to the traditional.  To the values and no gadgets methods which have nourished our craft for a very long time. Dedication, a simple logic in what we do and how we do it. For some, there is a lure; mysteriously elusive wood, tools that follow one's intention, an awareness that our craft is an intimately timeless education. If you feel even a bit of this… persevere.  Enjoy.  The journey may change your life.”
- James Krenov
