A Week Learning from the Best

I just returned from an awesome week studying advanced trim carpentry at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking outside Indianapolis.  I can’t recommend this place highly enough for anyone interested in woodworking–or any kind of making for that matter.  The class I took was taught by Gary Striegler (http://www.craftsmanbuildersnwa.com/).  It covered casing doors and windows, wainscoting, curved entryways, simple and layered crown molding, and baseboard.  Some of this stuff I have done lots of before, but he helped us take it to the next level. The class was demanding and wonderful.  Take a class with Gary if you can.  You won’t regret it.  And if you want to see just how beautiful trim work and built-ins can be, check out his website.  You will only find a few pictures of me and my work below.  As I ramp up this website I have to get in the habit of taking more pictures, which is hard for me because I hate stopping the action to take a picture (or worse, ask someone else to take a picture of me).
