Woodworking Network (WWN) ran a story in its FDMC magazine about a unique cross-country CMA collaboration that was sparked by an offhand conversation.
The WWN story detailed an October 2017 working shop visit in which CMA board member Chris Dehmer (Dark Horse Woodworks, Atlanta) and CMA president Matt Krig (Northland Woodworks, Blaine, MN) spent time at member Leland Thomasset’s Taghkanic Woodworking in Pawling, NY. Dehmer and Krig were going to be nearby for a regional CMA event, and they thought it would be great to make a hands-on visit to Thomasset’s shop.
“We went in work clothes and helped with the day’s work,” Dehmer says in the article. “We assembled cabinets, did some edgebanding, helped with miter-folding, helped with the CNC and also got a hands on-with Cabinet Vision.”
The article offers up more details as well as advice from the three on planning an effective working visit.
“Weeks later, we are still thanking each other for what we learned, implementing changes in all three of our shops and giving updates,” Krig says.
