In April I taught a weeklong class at the Kansas City Woodworkers' Guild.Everything I'd read and heard about the organization had left me with high expectations.As it turned out, my high expectations weren't high enough.
Guild members who took my class, with one of the nearly finished desks.Left to right: Sharon Pugh, Dave Kraatz, recently retired Director of Training, Robert Fenn (kneeling), Kirk Wanless, Barb Hinton, Marseille Bredemeyer, Oliver Clark, Miranda Clark, Gary Mielke, Treasurer, yours truly (in a rather unflattering t shirt), Andrew Carr, Rick Chandler (hiding behind Andrew), Craig Alexander,.
Craig Arnold, newly elected President, and Larry Thies, whose desk is on display here.Sure, I'd heard about the 10,000 square foot shop and was dimly cognizant that the place had existed for a long time, though I didn't yet know just how long.
That in itself is impressive, as social organizations go.I'd also heard they had some highly skilled members, such as Les Hastings.Add to this the extraordinarily affordable membership fee—$75 a year—and your eyes may pop, as mine did.
But there's nothing like spending a week or more teaching in a place to make you really appreciate what such bragging rights really entail...
