As part of their community outreach program, each year Minwax® recognizes and supports the outstanding work of craftspeople who have used their hands and hearts to improve their communities. This year’s Do Good With Wood® award went to the volunteers at the Assistive Technology Center of the Minneapolis Public Schools, where a group of woodworkers have been designing and creating educational equipment to benefit children with learning disabilities. As part of their award, I got to spend a day with them talking about and working with stains and finishes for their projects. If you would like to see what we did, you can read more about it here.
I can’t think of a better way to spend a rainy Saturday than being out in my workshop. And this past Saturday I had the pleasure of sharing my workshop space with the winner of the recent Minwax® Miracle Makeover Contest. If you’d like to take a look inside my workshop and see how Tom Peel and I spent our rainy Saturday, you can read more about it here.
