I am planning a business trip to Geneva, Switzerland but want to
visit some historical sites and some woodworking related sites. Can anyone
recommend things to see related to woodworking? Also, any good supply
(tools) stores in the Geneva area? Any links to supply stores in the Geneva
The Black Forest (Schwartzwald) area of Germany is not far from the Swiss
border. There's a stretch of small towns (Triberg and Gutach are the ones I
remember) that constitute a beautifully scenic tourist area with many
souvenir shops featuring clocks, carvings, and many other items. Some of
these have windows into the production area that allow you to watch the
carvers and craftsmen at work. Absolutely riveting!
The benefits of a tourist area are that everyone speaks English, takes
Visa/Master Card, and will ship your purchases to the US for a reasonable
charge - I'm sure a box of nice, sharp chisels would raise some eyebrows
among the airport screeners. Enjoy.
