Thread: Went to Mecca

    Went to Mecca

    Hi everyone

    Our travels found us in Atlanta on Friday and I looked up Highland Hardware's website.
    http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/index.asp

    Saw that they had a beginning turning class on Sat and called. The class was full but they couldn't have been more accomodating. A gentleman named Mike called the instructor and they found another lathe and sqeezed me into the class.

    I liked it! Did one bowl. Don't have a way to get a pic into my traveling computer right now but will send one when I get a chance.

    The store is a wonderful place, and the area is a nice funky blend of shops and restaurants.

    I told them about FWW so maybe somebody new will be dropping in!

    Just as a note, Highland Hardware has changed their name to Highland Woodworking. They actually changed the name on the front of the building. They have been a fixture at that store for as long as I can remember, and I am NOT young.

    I just looked at D4R jigs on their website. Their website is really looking good. Seems to be a updated somewhat.

    Jay, hope you enjoyed their class. I always laugh when I go down to the store. My brother's (Stoney Lamar) picture is up on the wall.

    They are really great people. I don't think anyone has any idea how large their internet business is. The store has the old funky hardware store fell that I always love.

    And Art, a trip to LV would be on top of my list any day.

    Jay,

    WATCH OUT FOR THE "VORTEX". It seems to affect people in strange ways and recovery appears almost impossible. Seek professional help as soon a possible.

    UH OH, I'll bet they are about to raise prices Anything that's a dime at a hardware store is sure to be a dollar at a woodworking store.
