Last week, Tom was invited to visit Harvard University to speak to a group of woodworking hobbyists at Eliot House. A man of unexpected talents, Tom surprises undergrads Raafi Alidina and Oliver Strand with a rendition of the Harvard Fight Song "Veritas," played on a crosscut hand saw!

Earlier that day, Tom lectured at the North Bennett Street School (NBSS) in Boston. Tom addressed the students of cabinet and furniture making on the basic principles of starting a successful business. Well aware of the challenges presented in the current economy, the group was especially interested in the company's ability to survive, and to thrive, during the recent recession.
