Woodworking Classes On Hold - BLUE HERON CLOSING

Micheal Evans, the owner of Blue Heron Woodworking Supplies, where I have had the great fortune of teaching in the last couple of years announced he will close the store at the end of July and start to enjoy a well-earned retirement.

To clear inventory, Mike is offering 25% off all items except Festool (drats!!!). Lumber carries a smaller discount. The discount will be progressive as the closing date nears. Check out his website for full details Blue Heron Woodworking.

Scrap Wood

I just can’t throw this away. I’m hoping some creative crafters can use this mixed box of mostly hardwoods, oaks, cherry, maple, walnut, some pine and cabinet plywood to make some interesting and cool things.
