    meeting another family member

    Hey, I met Jim today. Nice guy, we yapped about woodworking for 2 hours, and he saw my very congested work area, and I even showed him some of the stuff I built.
    Im the older guy with more meat on my bones.

    It was a pleasure meeting someone from the tristate area. another woodworker

    Good for you both, I can tell by the sawdust on your clothes that you did something else than woodtalking.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    yeah, well,jim has enough common hardwoods (oak, maple, ipe, mahogany, sapele, birch?, spanish cedar, walnut)to make a hundred or so pens and he has no excuse to not get started on some flatwork, no excuse except lack of time. I hooked him up with some white oak and ash to keep him busy. Its a family tradition, I wanted to keep it going.
    Im gonna get him to meet my wood guy one day.

    It was a very nice visit. He's a really good guy and loves to share woodworking knowledge. I got the tour of his shop and saw some of his pieces in place. I just need to channel some of his WW mojo . . .

    I've got enough wood for several pending projects and a received a "nudge" to get another project off the back burner. More on that later . . . I think there is a thread here somewhere I'll have to resurrect when the time comes.

    Cheers

    Jim
