Notes from the Chidwick Lecture
|Andy and me in Somerset.|
While I was attending The Woodworking Shows in Somerset, NJ on February 25, I was Tweeting about attending lectures by Andy Chidwick of The Chidwick School for Fine Woodworking. On of my fellow Twitterers (I wish I remembered who, I would give credit) asked if he could borrow my notes.
Well, I'm not the best of note takers, but here are my notes from Andy's lecture: "The Artisan Way."
- Failure -> Experience -> Confidence -> Success
- Book matching doesn't work with curved, 3D work. Instead, use pattern matching
- Use a window to match the grain pattern, then flip the window and do the other piece.
- Use extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulation as a modeling tool
- Andy is a very motivational guy

That's the extent of my notes, so if you want more, you'll have to go see Andy in Montana.
