A Walk in the Woods with Josh Vogel
Back in April, we published a story about woodworker Joshua Vogel, his partner Kelly Zaneto, and Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co., which the couple opened in September 2010 near Kingston, New York. BCM&T's focus is Vogel's turned bowls, vases, and boxes - take a peek at this newly launched catalog of his work - but there are also other goods: handcrafted cutting boards, for example, and a custom-blended cutting board oil.
Now, as BCM&T turns the corner on its first year, The Scout (a lovely and quite craft-minded design/lifestyle site) has given us all a real treat: A fantastic short film about Josh Vogel directed and edited by Brennan Stasiewicz, part of The Scout's documentary series. Just six minutes long, it thoroughly transports you into Vogel's workshop, into the woods - in a word, into his world.
