Woodworking In America has been wrapped up and put back in the tool cabinet for another year, but the lessons learned at the event are still revealing themselves as the weeks go on.
I know for myself, as I plan out upcoming projects and just spend time in the shop tinkering with my tools and practicing my techniques. Little tid-bits of knowledge seem to be seeping out here and there.
I can’t emphasize enough how amazing it is to be at an event like WIA and have direct access to some of today’s leading authorities in the field. Not to mention having a chance to hang out with old and new woodworking buddies from all over the place.
Recently we had a flashback to WIA 2010, when our good friend Adam King of the Woodworker’s Journey Podcast and Weblog posted his interview with Michael Fortune. If you’re not familiar with Michael you should be. He’s a frequent contributor to Fine Woodworking Magazine often publishing articles on design and bandsaw techniques (both of which he’s legendary for).
In his interview, we learn quite a bit about Michael’s background in woodworking. From his beginnings right up to his current situation and we also get a great look into how Michael sees design and uses it in his client’s custom pieces.
If you haven’t heard the interview yet, make sure you head over to Adam’s Woodworker’s Journey Website at www.woodworkersjourney.com and take a listen. While you’re at it, maybe you should subscribe to Adam’s podcast by the same name. I hear there’s more interviews to come and he’s always sharing little nuggets that stick with you long after you’ve stopped listening.
