Hello all! Remember the bike I restored for my wife from my last post? Well... it fit right in at the ocean on the Connecticut shore this last week.
We spent some time fishing....
Walking the ocean shores searching for sea shells...
Catching big horseshoe crabs.....
and enjoyed spending time with family that lives in the area. These are two of my sons with a few of their cousins standing next to the latest carving that my brother-in-law finished in Old Lyme. This is his tallest carving yet...well done Kris! If interested in checking out some more of his carvings and other work, feel free to check out his website at: http://www.customwoodcarvings.com/
In workshop news, I wanted to let you know I will be at "Fresh Grass" this weekend, located at Mass MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. Feel free to check out their line-up and website at http://freshgrass.com/
Hope you are able to come and check out the Luthier tent at the festival this year...
Festival partnersThe Fretboard Journal and Steve Sauvé of Sauvé Guitars lead an unrivaled group of instrument artisans who offer a variety of luthier activities throughout FreshGrass. Located in the luthier tent in the center of the festival, these professionals offer construction demonstrations and discussions about fiddle, mandolin, banjo, open-back banjo, guitar, and ukulele. Participants include Adam Buchwald of Circle Strings, Nicholas Lenski of Brier Road Guitars andBerkshire Stringed Instrument School of Lutherie, and Martin Macica of the Macica Workshop (specializing in mandolins and violins). With more contributors still to be announced, this year brings new and familiar faces to the luthier tent and a specialized demonstration area, where access to instruments and their craftspeople is unparalleled.
Looking forward to a great weekend! Hope to see you there!
