Paul Sellers Joinery Workshop at Gil Arad’s Woodworking School

Paul SellersIn late June 2016 I visited Israel and attended Paul Sellers’s Fundamental Hand-Tool Joinery Workshop which took place at Gil Arad’s Woodworking School outside of Jerusalem. For Paul it was his first visit to Israel, and for Israeli woodworkers – amateurs and professional alike – it was a rare opportunity to learn from one of the great teachers and makers of our time. 

Here I share a short slide show that illustrates this inspirational event.

    Thank you for posting that Mr. Liberman.
    I was curious about Paul’s visit and even more curious about the Gil Arad connection – it looks like it was a typical time with Paul – beneficial for everyone!

      On top of Gil’s Studio Furniture business and his great shop, he finds time to runs one of the three woodworking programs in Israel and the only one in central Israel. Therefore it was just natural that his place were chosen to host the four days workshop that Paul taught.
