Thread: As the Wood Turns

    As the Wood Turns

    Last wed I had a local News crew (Tim Cable) come by my shop and do a little segment on Me and my turning.
    Since 1990, Tim has hosted "Cable Country," a folksy feature-type segment profiling unique people in and around Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, and western North Carolina. Tim describes the segment as "a poor man's Charles Kuralt." Tim also anchors "NewsChannel 11 at Five" weekdays at 5:00 p.m.
    It aired tonight and he already has it up on his Blog, Here is a link so you can check it out.

    Jim, what a great segment! Some of those pieces he showed in the video are familiar-looking - I think I've seen them before somewhere! Congratulations on your "celebrity."

    Way to go Jim!

    Great interview, I think you said what many of us feel about woodturning

    So...which guy was you?

    Major congrats, Jim. Must have been fun doing the interview, then seeing what parts actually made it into the segment.
