...fine arts to bring us back together.

I have to say you and your school have instilled in me that appreciation for art and design starting back in 1995 and only growing to this day. You and your school have changed my life in such a profound way that I simply cannot adequately state my appreciation. Nor can I state the profound influence you have had on this world by promoting fine arts and crafts. In this topsy-turvy divided world, there is nothing more grounding than fine arts to bring us back together.

...made friends with many wonderful people.

As I reflect on the Thanksgiving season, one of the very many things I am thankful of is my friendship with you and your family and the school. Because of your school, I have met and made friends with many wonderful people. Thank you for that. I may not be a “Difference Maker”, but the two of you have made a difference in my life.

...an even greater appreciation

I just finished your book and wanted to take a few minutes to say thanks. It gave me an even greater appreciation of all that you, your staff, your instructors have given, not only to me, but to all of the people that have been blessed to be associated with MASW. May God continues to bless and use you and MASW to make the world a much better place.

... it really is a cool and special place.

I have honestly enjoyed being back this year. I think last year everything was so new for me, that I suffered from a little tunnel vision. I don’t think I was ever able to stop and take in what was really happening around me. Being back has allowed me to better appreciate MASW. I know you guys hear it all the time, but it really is a cool and special place. Thanks for everything!

...what a great operation you are running.

I know I’ve said this before but I think you need to continue to hear what a great operation you are running. I hope and only wish I was closer to be able to take more classes and maybe even help out for some of your volunteer work. Thank you for all you do. Best wishes for your newest grandbaby.

...you and your staff have built a special place

The two of you and your staff have built a special place that means much more to me than just a woodworking school. I have been there when certain tragic events have occurred in my life, however more importantly it has helped me heal from those events. This past year it represented something representing a bit of normalcy in a year that was anything but normal. Again, thank you both very much. I am honored to have you both as friends in my life.

... you continue the heritage of craftsmanship and excellence

Marc, I didn’t have a chance to adequately thank you for the apprenticeship class. The class was fantastic. I learned so much more about woodworking. The journey to MASW Masters designation has significantly changed my approach to working wood. Equally important has been becoming part of the MASW community. You and your staff are exceptional and inspirational. Thank you all for what you do, you make so many lives better while you continue the heritage of craftsmanship and excellence in the field of working wood. Thank you and God Bless you all.
