After my wonderful stay in Los Angeles I drove to Phoenix. It took 5 hours just to get out of LA but that was not enough to tarnish the memory.
I REALLY liked Phoenix! Actually, I stayed with friends in Sun City West and I had a great time. It was in the 80’s the whole time I was there and I even got to play a round of golf. The folks at Sun City have a fabulous wood shop, unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of it. :(
Anyway, I DID get to meet The Wood Whisperer! We met ahead of the interview for lunch and he brought his wife, Nichole so I also got to meet her. Both of them were very nice, down to earth people and they were easy to talk to.
The interview went very well. I will edit it after I get back to Minneapolis and hope to have it posted on YouTube in the first week of March. I will definitely let you know when it is ready!
I also met and interviewed Chad Schimmel.
You may not have heard of Chad, but he is one of the few people I have met who actually makes a living doing woodworking. In the interview with him he told me some of the secrets of how he makes money with woodworking.
After I got to Phoenix I learned that Ty Moser also lives there. I didn’t have enough time to interview Ty, but we did meet for lunch one day. He is definitely an up an comer and one to keep an eye on!
