News & Views Issue 94: Climate Control

Comments (0)

This article is from Issue 94 of Woodcraft Magazine.

My adventures as a woodworker runs parallel to that of Edwards Smith (Feb/Mar 2020, p. 4). After retiring, I filled my home and my daughters home with furniture that I made. The family fully stocked with tables, chairs, and cribs, I turned to scroll sawing and lathe work. Like Mr. Smith, I work from a “climate controlled” barn (hot in the summer and cold in the winter). Our winter temperatures in the Willamette Valley of Oregon are not as cold as Vermont; Smith’s grit is to be admired. At 87, I plan on continuing this most enjoyable part of my life for as long as I can stand at the tool and see the cut line.
