Show's Over Folks
Here I am turning and talking at the NWA Showcase this past weekend. It was a great show. We sold a slew of my calipers and met lots of nice folks. Most of my showing experience has been with a less focused group of onlookers, so talking and demonstrating to a group of woodworkers and enthusiasts proved to be a real pleasure.
Below is Mike Czaja (on the left) who's been reading the blog since its inception. I'd like to thank all the folks who read the blog for coming up and talking to me, it helps me explain to Sue why I am up until Midnight editing videos or writing posts!
I also got to meet some folks whose work I've admired such as Michael Mocho, Jim Tolpin and Thomas Wetzel. I also spoke with Don Flaws of Berne, New York who sells antique tools. He had some lovely straight drawknives (save yourself the trouble and only buy straight knives!) You can reach him at (518) 872- 1615.
I hope to see you there next year, they've asked me to return as a presenter at the Totally Turning Symposium which runs along with the showcase.
