installment #1 “Yes I want that drill press and more…” at Art & Soul

 I see the benefit of blogging as you go because I have so many stories and photos that I would love to share with everyone, I think I will try to make several posts in the next few days to cover as much as possible.

 I headed for Portland last Tue the 5th and spent the night with my friend Suzanne in Vancouver she put me up for several nights and the other nights I stayed with Dayna on her boat. Both Dayna and Suzanne took classes and have made posts about them so when you are done here check out their blogs.

  Wednesday was “Yes I want that drill press and more…” a shop class loaded with tools. We built a shadow box from new lumber and decked them out with objects the students brought in. I could not have done this class without the help of Maggie and Gil. Maggie manned the chop saw and was safety guru and Gil was on the circular saw, jig saw and all around tool master.  Suzanne was nice enough to come into this class and take the photos.

I love how the art goes with the artist.

Here we have above the sander, jig saw and drill press being put to work.

 Maggie and Gil help the class get the boxes together.
the final projects turned out GREAT!  

I really think in the next few weeks a few tools will be purchased and put to good use. Thank you class I really had a great time ! 

Tomorrow will be “Can I do that Michelangelo” a wire and clay sculpture class.

Nice job on your posts. I loved hanging out with you guys; thanks for letting me in on all the fun energy during the week. You are quite the teacher, Tory!

I overheard people in the hotel talking about what a great class this was! Way to go, Tory.

Thanks for a great class! I already found a 20% off coupon for Harbor Freight and the Drill Press is first on my list.

I especially enjoyed our chats outside the classroom and I think we've become mutual fans of each other. Hope to cross paths again in the future...

Tory, I thought you lived in Portland.

It was great meeting you and I wish I'd taken the drill press class. I don't know what you use it for but I have a strong feeling I want one too. Your laugh is infectious and i want to hear it again! xo
