Studley Tool Chest Exhibit

I purchased my ticket for the Studley Tool Chest Exhibit about 1 year ago.   I just knew this was something that was important as a woodworker.

I had decided that I would not buy the book.  I have a lot of books and so much to read, learn and make.  This decision was changed in the first five minutes in the exhibition room.   The docents started by providing a history of the man, Henry Studley.   There was so much information.  I quickly realized I wanted to learn much more than was there.  This was intensified when Don Williams exposed the chest and started talking and opening the lift panels.  I knew I would buy the book: Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Studley

As of now, I have read about half the book.  The provenance, history and details are just amazing.   The Chest is a work of art, but the book is also a work of art by a true master, Don Williams with  Narayan Nayar’s photography.

My pictures of the exhibition where not intended to show the Chest and Workbench, but to show the people.

Please enjoy the pictures.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    I’ve absolutely no expertise in programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the
    near future. Anyway, should you have any recommendations or techniques
