Wood expo

  • Spent the day yesterday at wood expo with the wife and another classmate and his.

It was such a great event hung out with Tommy Mac for a bit of the day as well as Eli and his girlfriend. There were dozens of great pieces there other then my school. Furniture institute of Mass had a student there named steve who had a remarkable period style serpentine chest. Kevin Mack was also there with some gorgeous pieces including an asian style cabinet with glass paned doors that he used glass coasters for! Steve brown was there doing a demo of making a chippendale chair with only hand tools. he made the shoe with a molding plane which I found to be very fun to watch. Chuck bender was also there working on various period pieces for people to watch. No pieces that I know of from the school sold however I dont know if anything did today and I will be sure to update on that tomorrow. Make sure to look for any info and interviews from the expo as I am sure you will see some awesome furniture and hear from some great makers. If you didnt attend this year make sure to next!
