    Bummer. He was another of the great ones. Maybe he and Sam can do some otherworldly collaborations.

    I just started reading one of his books, A Cabinetmaker's Notebook this week.
    A sad day for woodworkers.

    It has been often said that the great ones go in 3s. Hope that not the case this time.

    Saw him on an episode of Woodworks recently with David Marks. That's too bad.

    Looks like he brought much to the world of woodworking.
    Passing at age 89 is part of the natural progression of life. Always sad but easier to understand than the loss of someone who still had much ahead of them.

    What can one do to honor such a man? If I had the skill, I'd build a cabinet the way he made them. Sadly, I do not. All I have is words, so I pay my humble homage, in my small way.

    Thanks,

    Bill
