Dean Dr. Ronald Prowse

Have you heard the story of the two woodsmen? Two woodsmen got up one morning and sawed trees until dark. The first woodsman worked without stopping. The second woodsman took a ten-minute break every hour. At the end of the day, the second woodsman had cut a dozen more trees than the first. The first woodsman said, "How could you have cut more trees than I? You were taking breaks all the time, while I was going nonstop, sawing, sawing, sawing." The second woodsman looked at him and replied, "During those breaks I was sharpening my saw."

Participation in Detroit Chapter events help you keep you saw sharp. 

Be sure to note the Master Class with Olivier Latry in March.
