    My First Demo!

    This past friday night and saturday I participated in ArtStop. My dad was kind enough to help me load and set up his tent, my lathe and tools in front of my BIL's store, (The Mansion) Friday night was great with wonderful weather and lots of people stopping by to watch me send curlies all over the sidewalk. Saturday started with rain and ended with more rain and cold weather. I packed it in about 2 hrs early. Of course the sun came out just about the time I got home, but oh well.

    Lots of compliments and "so that's how that's done". I know of a few sales that were made friday night and I find out later today what the totals are...Had a great time and will do it again for sure if I can.

    Below are some pics of my setup on Saturday, all the rain, one of the bowls I turned Saturday as well as one of the display that is set up inside the store. It wil be set up all week so hopefully some more sales will come from that as well.

    Very nice. Makes me want to go grab a piece of wood from the 4 cords that just got delivered and give it a try. I certainly would have plenty to work with
