Gearing Up

First things first – what should Creative Woodworking focus on this year? More galleries? More events? More online? Well, the answer is yes, yes, and yes.

Our 1st event of the year is right around the corner, and luckily for us, it’s close by. 2/11/17 @ The Climb Fitness Center, Mt. Ascutney Resort, Brownsville, VT. If you are in the area, or can be, please join us.

Coming into the New Year, we have 6 galleries to visit and stock up. Today (for example), we were able to visit Long River Gallery & Gifts. They have a new, 2nd location in White River Jct., VT and it is a bright beautiful space. On Main Street, next to the Hotel Coolidge.

4. End Grain Squareend-grain-square-maple-walnut-pumpkin

Our end grain designs are stunning (if I do say so myself), the walnut and maple combo creates the most intense contrast, which seems to be preferred. This square has a unique design detail. Do you see it? Bud has “framed” it by cutting the edge pieces in half. All the same size little squares would have been fine, but, this is better. Great idea, everyone loves it.
