Hallowe'en brought a visit from a cute little lady bug!
And a monkey too!! ( Steve looks like he was amused...even if they weren't!)
Hallowe'en would have been James Krenov's birthday so Robert decided to have a tribute to him. The shop was full of people who came to share in hearing Robert speak and see a slide show of JK's work. We all wrote a note on a piece of yellow cedar, made a shaving and put it in a box that will be sealed up and burnt down at the beach. The plane we used to make the shavings was made by JK in 1960, then given to Michael Burns when he took over as the teacher at the College of the Redwoods. When Robert founded Inside Passage in 2003 it was passed on to him...pretty sweet!
Today we went for a walk in CLiff Gilker park, just across the highway. Our neighbour showed us the beautiful trails that wind through the trees and cross over numerous creeks and rivers.
This week Ian Godfrey is guest-teaching as we finish our cabinets and begin the prep work for our first projects. Everyone is very excited to be done with the poplar and get onto creating our first pieces.
