Last week during my bench-building class, student Bill Montgomery was commuting daily from his parent’s house, which was near Kelly Mehler’s woodworking school in Berea, Ky., where the class was taught.
He stayed with his parents for a couple days after the class before returning to Virginia and wrote me this short note:
“Attached is a picture of my bench’s temporary home until I can get it out to Virginia. With no room in Dad’s shop – my ‘only option’ was to rearrange Mom’s foyer to make enough room. I tried to disguise the bench – but Mom still noticed.”
Watch out Bill. Put a nice finish on that bench and a few lace doilies and it might not ever leave.
