Robert Fletcher Memorial Award

Earlier this month, it was my honor to receive the inaugural Robert Fletcher Memorial Award.  Bob passed away in January, and his presence is dearly missed in the shop.  I had the pleasure to work as one of Bob's students in his final years in the workshop.  He was the one I would always go to if I needed a way to fix a mistake.  He always found a way, whether rational or not, to find a solution. It was important to me this last year to work at his old bench.  Every time I cut a dovetail or was panicking over a glue-up, I would think of Bob and channel his love of this craft.  I think of him often and miss him dearly.
