Our next Guild General Meeting will be at Paul Tuller’s shop in Dublin, NH, on Saturday, February 16th.
Paul will show a few slides of his work and then give an overview of the use and care of Japanese hand tools for woodworking. A highlight of our day will be a tour of his Japanese timber frame house which he is completing on his property. Take a look at the house on http://www.paultuller.com/japanese_house.php. Also, be sure to click on the Architecture and Furniture tabs to see some of Paul’s work.
