Gestation Ending Soon

Thursday was a banner day in the Highlands as the first test pages for Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Studley appeared in my email.  It is an indescribable feeling to see the seemingly endless labors being expressed with such visual elegance.

I look forward immensely to the coming days in anticipation of seeing Wesley Tanner’s magic bringing my words and our images to life.  Especially if he continues to show my best side!

I am truly thankful to those of you who have offered encouragement over the past four years on this project, and expect your patience will be richly rewarded in only a few short weeks.

Increasingly I am turning my focus to crossing the “T”s and dotting the “I”s for the upcoming exhibit of both the tool cabinet AND the workbench, which has never before been seen in public.  Given the concurrence with and proximity to Handworks, perhaps the greatest celebration of contemporary woodworking tool making ever, it will make for an unforgettable weekend.
