Witness The indefatigable Schwarz, Dr. Wilbur Pan, and the great Frank Klausz (clipped from a short video):
The Schwarz requested Wilbur’s help with Japanese hand planes, and Wilbur obliged. Then Klausz joined in, and provided the following thought toward the end of the gathering – I transcribed from a short video I filmed while this happened (you must wait for the full content, most likely on Wilbur Pan’s blog, giant Cypress):
…I don’t know who is going to do all these things by hand… So, when you see somebody younger, cutting all these things by hand, you just wanna to see – this thing is not gonna die. (And, turning to The Schwarz, pointing a finger at him:) If YOU guys keep doing what you’re doing (my read: the Woodworking in America conferences), it’s NOT gonna die…
At impromptu gathering
Woodworking in America 2010 – Cincinnati
The Cincinnati edition of Woodworking in America provided a number of these gatherings. I missed most of them, but this one was quite special.
