The April General Guild Meeting will be held at the Lindsay Cabinetmakers' shop at 63 Nottingham Road in Deerfield, NH. Our host and featured presenter is Greg Brown, who shares this large, open collective with several other professional cabinet makers.
The morning agenda will include two presentations: Bob Zahn, a Guild member, physician and long time woodworker, will speak on shop safety, including one aspect that many of us probably do not emphasize enough – anyone care to guess what that may be? We will then “hear” from our very own Granite State Luthiers sub-group - a presentation of their art and perhaps some music as well. These presentations will be followed by a short Guild business meeting, and lunch - be sure to bring your lunch as well as a chair.
Our afternoon session will feature a demonstration by Greg Brown titled "Add a “Twist” to Your Carving: Winding Stems and Carving in the Round." He will also show us his "Sharpening Strategies for Tricky Gouges."
Here's a short bio from Greg:
Working in numerous shops and diverse environments throughout Hartford and Boston, my training was constantly evolving while teaching myself to carve. To further my skills, I enrolled at Boston’s North Bennet Street School with the goal of focusing more on freestanding work and refined joinery. In 2010, I was offered an opportunity to be a partner in a 12,000 sq ft collective in Deerfield, NH where I have hung my shield ever since. Along with running my own business in custom woodwork and carving, I also educate, write and am a member of the New Hampshire Furniture Masters Association. When not in the shop, I’m an avid fly fisherman and fly tyer.
