Ahh, September in Maine. Each year, as a few lazy leaves give up on their chlorophyll maintenance, a new Nine-month Comprehensive commences fresh as the crisp breeze that wisps through town off the harbor’s surface. Twelve students with very diverse relationships to the furniture world have put their lives on hold in order to jump head first into the demanding curriculum at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in rural and picturesque Rockport.
Welcome to the new Woodschool Blog, where you can stay current with the goings-on at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship. Meet the students, see the campus, drool over the tools, and watch the evolution of rough-sawn lumber and scribbles on a page into exquisite pieces of furniture.
