tow-smallcolor-logoExclusive Interview With Christopher Schwartz Well guys today was the first meeting  between me and one of woodworking most popular figures Christopher Schwartz. As many of the people who know me know I never held Chris on a high pedestal. I felt he was a Johnny come lately that was giving away all the secrets of woodworking in his books and editorials. While some of this is true I have found that while searching for old woodworking texts and Magazines one of my passions, I kept finding it out that Chris Was here. As I searched for a replacement for my grandfather’s book On Moxon which went to another family member when Grandpa died I kept coming across references to Christopher Schwarz. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. While this guy is popular because he is technically the best writer in woodworking today he is actually a student of the art. I considered myself in that same class with over 200 texts in my personal library. , I own and study many classic woodworking books that I have collected over the years and read till it hurt. Trying to be the best student of the art I could be. I simply kept running into Chris. Finally I broke down and purchased some of his work and began reading his blog .which is likely the most popular woodworking blog in the world today. I discovered in Chris a part of me. I found we shared a desire to educate and a desire to acquirer the old ways of working wood. So I asked him if he would be willing to give me an exclusive interview for a story I am writing on him. Thankfully Chris got back to me and I conducted the first part of the interview today. Now in the next few days I will ask him many more questions and try to get some more insight in this man and his quest for woodworking knowledge. So I have decided to As My Readers for Questions to ask Chris. I have also asked the staff here to send me questions they would like answered about this leading figure in woodworking today. So if you have a question you would like me to ask Chris Please email me the question. I will sort through them and choose the ones I like best and you will all be a part of this exclusive interview. lance@thisoldworkshop,com
