Finally... and the big news is...

Forgive me if I'm a little overwhelmed right now. For the last few blogposts, I've been hinting that I might have some news to share here. Sort of big news, at least for me. I'm thrilled to be announcing something that's been many, many months in the works. Months of planning, researching, getting approval and licensing, liability insurance and that's not even the half of it.

The news? I'm finally going to be able to start offering lessons in small groups for anyone wishing to learn woodworking. Down the line, I hope to offer much more than just wood classes, but for now, it's a good start. I'll have more details and a time line in the weeks to come, but it's all starting to come together.

Right now, the space is being painted and tweaked to accommodate benches, tools, storage racks and all the other accoutrements that define a studio.

One of the best parts about finally securing a space is that I'll finally be able to host the Sin City Woodworkers, rather than have our meetings at various locations around the valley. Some of the woodworkers I've met have already turned into great friends, and I'm confident that our numbers will continue to grow.

In the meantime, I'll probably start blogging about the ups and downs of pulling this project together. Wish me luck! And if anyone out there is handy with a paint roller, please stop by!

I am VERY interested in taking a woodworking class, and I've been searching and searching for one, or even something remotely close to a "class". I just want to learn as much as I can, and be able to learn in a practical manner, hands on. I would love to learn more about the classes you will be offering!

Gee if only Vegas wasn't quite so far away. You're a GREAT teacher and they are so very lucky to have you there. Congratulations and wishing you the best of luck! Still missing you in Akron, Ohio!
