Doug Stowe's box making abilities are legendary as his students quickly discovered. For sheer output, this class always sets the bar on productivity as each student crafted many boxes over the course of five days.
This weekend we hosted "Embellishments with Garrett Hack," "Make a Cutaway Guitar (Part 2) with John Ressler" and "Turned Bracelets: Combining Wood and Metals with Barry Gross." Quite a line up!
