Woody Events in the Northeast

Just a quick post to bring a couple of opportunities to your attention, especially if you happen to reside in the Northeast.

Fallon & Wilkinson Wood ID in Furniture Workshop - October 15 and 16, 2016.

I've written before about this great class, and wanted to remind all that there are still a few seats left in this hands-on, personal experience for those who want to deepen their knowledge of wood, and how it was used by the furniture masters of the past.

And besides the opportunity to sharpen your wood identification skills, you'll get an exclusive, hard-to-get tour of the Furniture Study at Yale University, where the curators will keep you spell-bound with stories of some of the greatest furniture ever made. This has got to be one of the most unique opportunities in the world of wood appreciation, so if you've ever considered it the past, now is the time to go. It is so good, I hope to be able to make it again, myself.

They don't make them like this anymore. Recognize the wood?
Hearne Hardwoods Two-Day Open House: September 30 - October 1, 2016

Ever spend the day touring a lumber company's facility? How about doing that and meeting dozens of great woodworking organizations, including the International Wood Collectors Society? If this sounds like a good way to spend a day, come to Oxford, Pennsylvania at the end of this month. Oxford is just a stone's throw from Pennsylvania's border with New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland, and its a great drive from almost anywhere in the Northeast.  The main attraction of the open house is the "discounted slab sale" that Hearne will be offering the attendees. So if you're looking for that special piece of wood, and want to enjoy the day looking for it, then we'll see you at Hearne Hardwoods.

Here's a link to your invitation to the Hearne Hardwoods Open House.

Mike Korsak Woodworking: A Furniture Maker's Open Studio

And if you're in the Pittsburgh area, and want to attend a fine furniture makers open studio, then you can stop by and visit Mike Korsak this Sunday, September 11, between 11 am and 4 pm. Mike is opening his studio (which we've toured together on Go Wood) to visitors who want to see furniture making in its highest form.

Here's your invitation to visit the Korsak studio.

So get out there and Go Wood...
