Today on the Woodwright's Shop, he visited a museum (they call it a
laboratory, because you can use the tools) for old woodworking machines,

It's in Berea, KY, and part of or next to a woodworking school.
Has anyone been there? Is it worth a trip? I'm only about 4 hrs away.

a trip I'd certainly take.
But upon further reading I turned up this:
Knowing Roy, I'm sure that's the place shown on his show.
And that place is also something I would very much like to see.

Brian Boggs had his shop there for years, as well, altho istr seeing he
had moved to NC.
Berea and area is full of ones you'll have heard of and many you won't,
some of whom are every bit as talented...
