I was hooked, that class left an indelible impression on me. I kept visiting John, learning, and having fun being immersed in oak. I attended some classes at Country Workshops and was the summer intern in 1996.
Since than I have attended more classes and taught at Living Class Rooms in Baltimore as a woodworking instructor.
I really enjoy working with green wood, the way it shaves and the tools used, the sound it makes against them, and even the smell, usually.
In my opinion, it makes a better stronger finished product than kiln-dried stuff.
