    Just got back from the show, I figured I'd go on Friday as it should be less crowded than Satuday or Sunday, but alas it was still packed.

    Here's one for the Neander's



    One for the Spinny Guys



    Gives new meaning to "Steam Bending"



    Some Scroll Saw work



    Lonesome George The Basset



    Hard to tell from the picture but the cowboy hat is wood and he turned it on the lathe



    Something for the Carvers



    I think this is called Intarsic or something similar



    Chain saw blade you attach to your circular saw


    I got out cheap all I bought was a corner chisel

    Sounds like you had a good time Dan. I think they've taken a break from hosting a show up near the Seattle area. Having gone to a number of these over the years, my enthusiasm eventually waned as the number of vendors got smaller and smaller. Good job for resisting the urge to indulge in a little "spur-of-the-moment" shopping.

    Thanks for thinking of us all Dan That Basset hound on the cushion is absolutely amazing. The cushion is so so well done it looks real.
    Real lot of talent at the show.
    cheers

    Lee Valley and Peachtree were probably the best known companies there, I was disappointed that Grizzley wasn't in attendance since they are only a couple hundred miles north in Bellingham. oh well it was a well spent day!

    I sold the beam cutter 20 years ago when I had my tool store.
