Beginning Marquetry - October 2010

Tim Swanberg is teaching Beginning Marquetry this week (Oct 11-15) at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking. Stop by and watch the work progressing. We'll be updating this album through the week.

Update - what a wonderful week! In one of those moments of inspiration I suggested that the students make a panel of the Copper Canyon Press logo. Calling it a logo is a low blow. The Kanji of the logo means "Word Temple". Copper Canyon Press is our closest neighbour at Fort Worden State Park.

Tim and the students accepted the challenge immediately and with gusto! The completed panel will be auctioned off at the Woodworker's Ball on November 6th at the Northwest Maritime Center. We hope a generous soul will buy the Word Temple Panel and give it back to Copper Canyon Press. Your never know - it could end up in the Office of the Poet Laureate of the United States. The Panel will be on display the Port Townsend Woodworker's Show 2010.

I want to thank Tim Swanberg for his wonderful teaching style, humour and dedication to the art. We'll be getting him back soon.

Again the slide show says it all.
