    Family Gathering

    Last weekend a few Family Members managed to converge in the same spot at the same time at a very crowded woodworking show in Saratoga Springs, NY.

    Left to right are Don Orr, Mark Kosmowski, Ken Werner, and Allen Levine.

    Hope you all enjoyed the show as much as I did !

    Look at that sweet Five Barns t-shirt.

    It was a really good show. I learned alot, met some really great folks and saw some other great folks again since awhile ago.

    Even though my tool haul was mostly spinny stuff, I do plan on making a shooting board after learning about them at the show.

    Talk about your rag-tag band of ne'er-do-wells... That Kosmowski fella looks like trouble just waiting to happen.

    I'd have enjoyed being there at the show just to see Allen's reactions to his first woodworking show. (And it sounds like a good show, too. Not like the tired-out exhibition I attended out here a couple years ago.)

    It was my first show too. There were a few time I found myself just staring into space in the vendor area, completely overwhelmed. Somehow I managed to pull myself together enough to pay attention to the seminars, but after the first three on Sunday (out of six possible) I didn't need to poke myself with a thermometer to know I was well done. That was when I just wondered around the vendor area doing my part to stimulate the economy.

    Sounds like it was a good show and ya'll had a lot of fun. Thanks for the pic and names. It's always good to be able to put a face with the names on the posts as they come up.

    You are all very fortunate to have a show so close. In the last 14 years there has only been one show that came to Boise and it was, um, not-so-hot. Especially since I remember going to the shows in north NJ and Port Washington , PA. Big ones. Now the nearest show is an 9 hour drive and an overnight stay away. Like Chuck, my pockets are too small. I'd blow my whole budget on transportation!

    Great that you could all get together!

    I was looking forward to it for weeks, and was not disappointed. Had a great time traveling with Mark and meeting up with old and new friends.
