While in Texas last week I called fellow LJ GaryK and asked if I could come by and see his shop. He graciously consented so away I went.
His shop is about 5 times larger than mine and well equipped. I must say that the time I spent in his shop was one of the best days I have had in a while. We talked about his tools and he spent time to show me how to set them up to work to very close tolerances. He pulled out his wood samples box (beautiful box) and we spent at least an hour just talking about wood. His storage areas are filled with exotic woods.
Gary’s projects and tutorials have been an inspiration to me for a long time. When Gary posted his Pie Crust Table, I started collecting router bits to give this a try. We spent some time talking about the way I was thinking about approach this project.
The inspirations are endless. Included on my must build are the following GaryK projects.
Like most of us he has more than one project started. Everything I have ever dreamed of building he has built or is in the process of building. What a pleasure to see the find details in these projects.
Gary showed me his new project but asked me to keep it a secret. I will say this; once again his wood working genus will shine through. Gary you have been an inspiration to me and I am sure most of the LJ community. Keep the challenges coming!
Thanks John (Chips)
