PF 2019 Teaching Schedule

The year is nearly 1/4 over; and I’m just posting my teaching schedule. I was sure I did it already, but find no trace of it. And this was going to be the year I got organized…

This is all of the schedule for right now. There’s one more carved box class in October, have to finalize it & post it. Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. There will be some Plymouth CRAFT stuff late in the season; I’ll post updates when I have them.


Soon I’ll leave home – first stop is April 2-6 – Carved oak box at Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School. Sold out, but other chances later in the season – see below.


April 25 & 26; Winterthur Museum; Furniture Up Close; I’ll do a lecture/demo combination, and some collaboration with Bob Trent. We’ll have a chance to see some pieces from the collection, you guessed it, up close.

 Brochure & schedule here –


May 3-8; Plymouth CRAFT – Make a JA chair from a Tree.

6 days, only 6 students, sold out quickly; waiting list here:


June 9th – One-day Spoon Day with Plymouth CRAFT; JoJo Wood, Dave Fisher, Tim Manney & way more –

spoon carvers

Plymouth CRAFT is taking a year off from Greenwood Fest, but we then filled our time with a small-scale one-day version that’s just as maddening. Details here:


July 29- Aug 2, Lost Art Press Storefront Classes – carved oak box;

Your next shot at coming to make one of these boxes. This time only 6 students. I bring quartersawn oak, white pine and handmade nails for the boxes; you learn a slew of carving patterns and off we go.


Sept 7 & 8 – Lie-Nielsen – Making shrink pots. The parlor trick of green woodworking.

We’ll make as many of these as we can in 2 days; and find all kinds of ways to decorate them. After Labor Day in Maine is the best…


Sept 28 & 29 Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking – 2 days of oak carving – Like the middle of the box class – 2 full days of exploring just carving patterns. Watch Bob’s horror as all he sees is faces.


Dec 9- Friday Dec 13 – Lost Art Press Storefront Classes – Carved oak box for those who missed it before.

We finish up on Friday the 13th – what could go wrong? (It’s bad luck to be superstitious)
