Added Class and Spoon Video!

As I mentioned in the recent post, I have been batting the idea of teaching a perch class back and forth with my friends at Lie-Nielsen this summer and we finally pulled the trigger. It's a two day class and spaces are limited to 10 students. Check out their site for the details.

This is one of my favorite chair projects. I did all the writing for my book sitting on one, so I assure you, it's a comfortable seat!

 Jon Binzen is somewhat of an unsung hero in the world of woodworking. He has been creating the back cover for Fine Woodworking for many years as well as some of it's best features. I've been lucky enough to work with Jon a few times and recently, with his help and advocacy, I wrote an article for Fine Woodworking on spoon carving. It's been a long time since the magazine featured spoon carving and I'm proud to be in it. That said, there are lots of great spoon carvers out there and I can name a few that I think deserve to be heard more than me. Jon also shot a video about my spoons that you can see here.

Excellent! I can't agree more about Jonathan Binzen. You've probably heard that most people read the cartoons first in the "New Yorker" magazine. I always look first for the Binzen back page and "How They Did It" followup in Fine Woodworking.

Very nice video, Peter. Your spoons have always been as sumptuous as your chairs. You really hit the nail on the head about pulling a spoon carver away from his work :)

That video is awesome. I think I learned to carve a spoon in like five minutes.
