Last Wednesday my Dad drove the 5 hour round trip and spent the day with me in my shop. He is the one that convinced me to using some old scraps to make myself a little workbench 3-4 years ago which led to my hobby of wood working. He saw a guy at a craft show a few years ago turning bowls. I helped him get set up for it and now we both turn bowls. He watched me make several bowl blanks on my bandsaw and then I turned a cherry bowl. We then worked together on a dogwood bowl for a freind of his. He loved my new lathe. It was a very good day. This will be one of my fondest memories. (picture of my Dad below)
Also, he brought me an old jointer which I was able to glue up my shaker table top. Bonus!
