May 2013 Meeting – Jim Hume’s Shop

On Tuesday, May 7th we revisit Jim Hume’s fabulous shop. Jim is one of the founding members of our club when it started in 1984, and also a founding member of Artwood, a cooperative art gallery in Bellingham. Jim’s wife, Erica, is Artwood’s manager. Jim has literally spent his life working on cars and woodworking. His cars range from hot rods to dragsters and even include a car that is currently undergoing testing/trials with the goal of exceeding the conventional, wheel-driven piston-powered auto speed record by at least 100 mph! He’s currently modifying a 38 Ford hot rod with a Corvette drive train and frame. His woodworking includes beautiful furniture, segmented turnings, jewelry boxes and cabinets. His shop is amazing and big enough for us to hold a meeting in, but if you would like to rest your feet, bring your own chair. To learn more about the land speed record car, check out

From the west, and from Burlington, Mount Vernon and Bellingham, take I-5 to the Bow Hill exit 236. Turn east and at the bottom of the hill cross Old 99 onto Prairie Road. (Bow Hill Road becomes Prairie Road on the east side of Old 99.) Jim's house and shop are on the right, 5.6 miles from I-5.

From the east, and Sedro Woolley, drive north 5.7 miles on Hwy 9 from Hwy 20, and turn left on Prairie Road. Jim's shop is on the left, 2 miles from Hwy 9.

Jim's house and shop are red with white trim. Some GPS units miss Jim's house by almost a mile, so watch for the house number!
