Jim Tolpin, Drawknives and Port Townsend

One of our perennial jokes about living in Port Townsend is that "Life is tough in Port Townsend , but somebody has to do it!".

Jim Tolpin follows up his article on Drawknives in a recent edition of  Wooden Boat Magazine with a series of demonstrations at the 2011 Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend. We're sharing some pictures of the demonstation and some general pictures of the Wooden Boat Festival. For me this was the best year ever.
