One of the trade magazines that Gerry reads regularly to keep on top of his woodworking skills is Fine Woodworking. Phil Lowe, owner and director of The Furniture Institute of Massachusetts in Beverly, MA has authored many articles over the years. He is also a visiting instructor at schools and woodworking organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada. To many woodworkers, Phil is considered a master in his field. Gerry was thrilled to be able to meet Phil this past week while visiting family in Beverly, MA.
Phil had just finished teaching a woodworking class and invited Gerry in to tour the studio and see his work, as well as that of his students.
We like to continue to learn new methods and products to improve our skills, and Phil was kind enough to share some of his knowledge with Gerry.
Gerry’s impression of Phil, his studio and his work was beyond his expectations. It is no wonder he was awarded the Cartouche Award in 2005, the highest honor given by the Society of American Period Furniture Makers.
