MWA 5 Questions - Brian McCauley



After our wonderful interview with Brian McCauley, we stayed around the mics and went through our 5 questions.

One of Brian's beautiful tables.

Brian's answers prompted a fun discussion ranging from tools to styles to the work of Art Carpenter.

Unfortunately, Art's book, Education of a Woodsmith, appears to be out of print. I highly recommend you pick up a copy at Lee Valley while you can, as I can't quite endorse the $299.00 price tag on Amazon.
