Please join with us, help us to celebrate new beginnings based on a life working wood every single day for almost five decades. You made all of this become more than a mere possibility, showed us the need, provided the inspiration, gave us the ideas, wrote day and night from every continent and now it has happened because you asked for it. Today we took all that I have worked on for many decades and started an online apprenticing strategy. As you followed us in our progress to be the first school opening on two continents, we want you to know that the reason we did is all you. Had it not been for your support, your involvement and your commitment in so many ways, we would never have accomplished what we have. Thank you!
For many years, woodworkers around the world have asked us, “Just how can we learn the skills of woodworking masters?” Today, for the first time in our history, we offer a legacy if you will. It’s a legacy of hand tool woodworking that always starts with real wood, real hand tools and real teaching at the workbench as if you were in the workshop with a master woodworker. My friends and I have united in partnering The New Legacy School of Woodworking with Woodworking Masterclasses to give you interactive online broadcast to show the many ways craftsmen and women use to this remarkable substance we call wood. Our Masterclass series begins with Paul Sellers, his friends and his colleagues who know woodworking from the inside out. Our video cameras are always ready to record daily activity that provides reality training for new Genre woodworkers no matter their background or where they live in the world. This now means you can access training anytime twenty-four-seven, and this is just the beginning. Not everyone can attend our New Legacy School workshops and we wanted to do something about that. We felt that this would be the next best thing and certainly we hope that you will feel like you are standing with my regular students and apprentices around the bench with me. Please, join us as we celebrate our launch of Woodworking Masterclasses for the next generation of woodworkers online.
