Making the Cut – A Career in Woodworking

Our October program will feature NCWA member Brian Noel of Oak Harbor. Brian and his wife Kitty started their business Bearkat Wood 18 years ago making small projects for the Myrtle shops on the southern Oregon coast. Brian has continued making custom fine furniture since that time and 8 years ago began making saws and card scrapers. The June issue of Fine Woodworking reviewed one of his saws and titled the article “Premier Dovetail Saw is Worth the Wait”. Come and hear Brian discuss his woodworking processes and what’s involved in making a premium handsaw.
