Shop Time, Woodworking Education

Where’s Jim Been? Boston Mini Maker Faire, Lie-Nielsen Tool Event, and Some Wood Turning

Sometimes “lifestuff” happens and disrupts the normal routine of life, including shop time… The last year to year and a half have made it so I haven’t had as much shop time as I normally would have. Though both my parents passed in 2017, not all life changes are bad. I have been able to get started in wood turning recently and made some pens. Here is a quick update of what’s been going on, including a new day job, Maker Faire in Boston, and the Lie-Nielsen event at the Furniture Institute of Massachusetts (Phil Lowe’s shop) in Beverly, MA.
