Bob Woodyard, Jaap Romijn and I made a visit to David Kotz's Coyote Woodshop down on Bainbrdge Island. We were scouting for material for some furniture projects and wanted to meet David and see his operation.
The three of us were very impressed. David has amazing selection of local wood and a great setup.
If you're in the Seattle area and want some slabs for that special project - I'd recommend taking a trip out to Bainbridge Island. Coyote Woodshop
I'm hoping that we can work with David to pull together a course on working with live-edge slabs in 2011 at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking. Let us know if you're interested.
Since pictures are worth a thousand words - I'll let the slideshow do the talking:
