Chairmaking with Tom Dolese - May 2011

These guys had a great week with Tom Dolese at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking. This may look staged but watch the slideshow below - these guys got on well and had a lot of fun together. 

Plus they put on the best potluck lunch we've had so far. Russ's wife Nun is Thai and she prepared some amazing curries which, combined with great bread from Pane d'Amore, stunning cookies and good salads from the local Coop, created a wonderful array. And it was sunny during the meal!

Tom's energy and enthusiasm are contagious, The quality of the finished chairs was impressive. They decided that black for upholstery is the new cool.

Tom's shop assistant Abe joined them for a couple of days in the middle of the course. Thanks Abe!
