Meanwhile, over in the ATMOsphere, Richard Sachs posted a letter from Bill Hurlow, noting his recent deposit for a custom frame. This falls within the time period of RS’ life before he began building at Witcomb. Didn’t know he built for Witcomb? Don’t worry, I didn’t either.
A lot of frame builders have a dialog they’ve perfected over the years, as to why and how they began making frames. For me, reading this letter from ’72 and Richard’s perspective on it really resonates.
If you’re interested in custom frames or framebuilding whatsoever, you should really get over to Richard Sachs‘ blog and read this article.
