What better place for a bunch of woodworkers to visit, and guided by a fellow maker who knows his stuff? We’re in the van on the way back to the city, and everyone is discussing their favorite pieces, and some are planning another visit with their families after our residency. I have a feeling you might even see some details of new work that have been inspired by the things we saw today. And thank you so much for arranging for us to see Bob’s house and also for allowing us all to do this for free. So wonderful!
