    Family WW Visit - Mike Henderson

    I swung by Mike Henderson's shop this morning to help him get a faithful old friend of his out of the way (I think his Saw Stop was jealous of his past relationship with his C-man contractor saw). I'll be using his old contractor saw as part of a mad experiment I have in the planning stages for a crosscut station.

    Mike was kind enough to give me a tour of some of his work in his home. He has a really wonderful version of an expanding dining table and I took a seat in the most beautiful cherry rocker. I also got to see one of his Newport chests that was in the Fine Woodworking contest. If you haven't, check out some of his work here: http://www.mikes-woodwork.com/

    Mike is a modest gentleman of obvious skill. His ingenious use of limited space has confirmed my worst fears; I am spoiled. . . spoiled rotten by my 20' x 30' workspace. Although I have made good use of portions of my space, I have been sloppy and wasteful in other areas. I now stand re-committed to my emergent reorganization plans. Thanks Mike, for the tour and the inspiration.

    Shame on me Larry. I hadn't been tracking the travel thread because I assumed it would all be on the right hand side of the country. You're gonna be out this way? I better go catch up on that thread.

    Well Glenn, there is still time to rectify, if you can make it at Vaughn's place, I'll be glad to meet you there together with all the rest!
    Best regards,
    Toni
