Just a heads-up here, folks. We have six in-class work days left. And May 5 won't be a work day because that is the day we have our visiting artist, David Jackson. He will be demoing sharpening techniques, some Japanese hand tools, and I have requested that he talk to us about softwoods. I will be trying to track down some Port Orford Cedar and some Alaskan Yellow Cedar before he comes. I'm very excited about his lecture and his demo. Everyone had better practice getting to class on time before his visit.
Tomorrow, Monday, everyone should be marking out their tenons and cutting them. I will demo this at the beginning of class.
