I leave for North Carolina tomorrow morning, and being from Seattle, it’s fair trek to get there. I am going to meet a master of the craft, a veritable crazy old Jedi wizard of hand tool woodworking.Â Â Roy Underhill. I am taking a class and a seminar at the newly opened Woodwrights School in Pittsboro, NC for my 40th birthday. (My Birthday already happened, but this trip is my present.)
I’ll be taking “Planes for Joinery” Wednesday night, and a full day with Roy on the subject of “Mortise, Tenon, & Dovetail”. Â Should be exciting, and a bit intimidating, but I hope to learn a lot. If nothing else, I’ve always wanted to meet this guy and I owe it all to Dan.
