Foundation course alumna Andrea Love has brought George Walker and Jim Tolpin's "By Hand and Eye" to life in a delightful little movie. Check it out!

You can catch Jim's By Hand and Eye Class at the School on March 21-22. Just a few spots still open. http://www.ptwoodschool.org/by-hand-and-by-eye

Dividing the Drawer
For years I've used a wall hanging toolbox system for my screwdrivers. The system is pretty neat. It consists of a cleat to fasten to the wall, a frame which hangs on the cleat and three (3) drawers which are removable from the frame. The frame has a handle...
