A conversation with Jim Tolpin. Since 1970 Jim has worked professionally in woodworking as a timber framer, boat finish carpenter, and custom cabinet maker. He’s also been a teacher and a writer, co-founding the Port Townsend School of Woodworking in 2007. Jim has written articles for most of the major woodworking magazines including Fine Woodworking and Fine Homebuilding. He’s also written feature length articles for Coastal Living and Cottage Living magazines. Additionally, he’s written eighteen books that together have sold nearly a million copies. Jim’s latest book, Euclid’s Door, is due out this fall from Lost Art Press.
A conversation with Roy Underhill. Roy is best known as the host of the PBS series The Woodwright’s Shop and the many books that followed. While working in television he also served as Master HouseWright for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, where he and his crew recreated the work of 18th century carpenters and joiners - much like playing early music on the original instruments. Roy now runs The Woodwright’s School in North Carolina, dedicated to historically-informed woodworking.
