Which is to say that this is a photo of BARN’s first Shaker Bentwood Box Making Class. The fellow with the confused look on his face is the instructor (yours truly).

Although there were four slots for the class, only three lucky folks signed up. Everyone had a great time and I’m confident that they all walked away with the skills to reproduce the great work that they did in class.

While working alone in my own shop is both satisfying and rewarding, there is nothing like the feeling that comes from passing on how to do what you know and love. I’m looking forward to teaching the next class.

Cheers,
Tom

Big smiles all around, with a handful of completed projects = great success in my book!

Excellent Job!

No doubt in my mind that you'd be a success.

Hey Dennis,
I always make one box along with the class as a demonstrator and to ensure that everyone goes home with a finished box, no matter what happens.
Cheers
Tom

Tom, the school I belong to as a member has classes making cutting boards and they seem to keep filling up. Just a thought.

I am all smiles for you. "there is nothing like the feeling that comes from passing on how to do what you know and love. I’m looking forward to teaching the next class."
Many successful classes ahead for you.
