Woodworking as performance art


Hey folks,

Years ago, I happened to walk past a butcher shop in a village, in England.  The butcher was in the  windowed front corner of his shop, butchering a half hog for all the world to see.  As I stopped to watch, I thought, “There stands an honest man, who not only shows his product, but also his craft.”

When I put the Nicholson bench in the front window of my shop, I had that butcher, and his shop, in mind. So this week I’ve been putting the finished surface on a run of Roorkhee chair legs, while working in my storefront window. I gotta say, I’m a little disappointed that so many folks just walk by without even looking up from their cell phones. Oh well, I guess as they say, “Don’t quit your day job.”

Hey wait a minute… 🙄
