If you were disappointed to find that "Through the NarrowGate with Marc Adams" had sold out, we've got great news for you. A few slots in the class just opened up and are available on a purely first-come, first-served basis!

Those of us who attend classes already know just how special this place is, but it's always interesting to see how the average man on the street views our school.

I took a few moments a week or so ago to sit in on a demonstration in Inlay for Woodturning & Flatwork with Stephen Hatcher. I was sure I would see something interesting (...always do), but I was completely unprepared for the visual impact that an inlay of crushed minerals could give a piece; especially when it's set into a delicate groove around the rim of a bowl or platter. All the information I had going in was Mark Hedin saying, "Hatcher's about to do a cool demo!" and that's all I needed to hear. What did I learn? It's really easy to do, once you understand the process!

We'd like to put a call out for any of our alumni that are planning on attending the Woodworking Shows in Kansas City, Atlanta, and Milwaukee over the next 3 weekends.

This last few weeks has been quite an eye opener for those of us here at the school. Why, you ask?? Well, it’s just that our staff isn’t exactly used to feeling like mere babes, still wet behind the ears. But two of our students have changed all of that (and we’d like to thank them)!

Wednesday I had the good fortune to spend some time with Silas Kopf’s class as they continued on day 3 of their marquetry odyssey. Since it’s kind of hard to describe all the cool things that are going on in that class using just words, I thought I might be able to do it justice if I included some photos to back up those words.

Marc Adams had the opportunity recently to shoot a segment for "The Weekly Special", broadcast on PBS station, WTIU out of Bloomington, IN.

Well, given that Memorial Day weekend pushed our classes onto a Tuesday to Saturday timeline, we're all enjoying a day off. I thought I'd use this momentary lull to give you a quick peek into some of what took place during last week's classes.

You don't need me to tell you that technology moves pretty fast these days, and that's true no matter what field you work in…

Any week that we have both Michael Fortune and Scott Grove instructing, we know it's going to be a very creative week!

It’s a good thing I work at a woodworking school, or a phrase like "you’ve got nice legs" could get me slapped (or punched!) awfully fast.

Well, we’ve already completed our first week of sold-out classes in the 2013 season and I know that most of you are already champing at the bit while you wait for your own week of classes begin...

A few days ago, I was scanning Facebook for interesting woodworking posts when I happened to spot one from one our own Master’s students.

Now we all know that woodturners are a little on the strange side, what with all that round stuff and no 90 degree angles to keep you grounded. And anyone who’s attended the school while Alan Lacer is teaching knows that there is no better proponent for the school of “round is better than flat”than he...

I'm a bit ashamed to confess this...it's really a "black" mark on my otherwise "stellar" history here at MASW.

Well, its starting to feel like the end of the school year.

Useless knowledge that you won't have to spend time figuring out... since I already have.

Hi folks!! Okay, so here we are... It's a mixed up week this week because we had Monday off for Labor Day. So, today is Monday- Tuesday, tomorrow will be Tuesday- Wednesday and on and on it goes till we're all totally confused and just order pizza on Sat. and call it "good." Don't ask me what day it is, 'cause I'm NOT GONNA KNOW!!

Hi Everybody!! Boy! We've all been a little sluggish in the kitchen lately. Susie and I both were joking that hopefully between the two of us we added up to at least ONE brain! LOL!

Hi everyone!! Well, It's been released! The results of Princeton Review's top 20 "Party Schools" have been announced and once again, Marc Adams School of Woodworking has been ignored....totally ignored.
