Nakashima Foundation Tour - recommended!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone - I had a chance today to visit the Nakashima property and get a guided tour (along with about a dozen other people). If you find your way near southeastern Pennsylvania and have a few hours to spend, I highly recommend it. You get to go through several of the buildings as staff members explain details about Nakashima's philosophy, the history of the property, processes, and other details. It's not a particularly long tour, and unfortunately, you don't get to go into the workshop itself, but it's wonderful to see the in-progress pieces, examine the completed pieces and prototypes sitting around the property.

And if you ever feel bad about your lumber stash... you should see theirs. They describe it as their "Raiders of the Lost Ark" barn, and it doesn't feel like they're exaggerating.
