Today I accompanied a very good friend and carving buddy to So.CalWood.
I have to say as we drove up the driveway to meet Rob I saw all the wood and the heart palpatations started.
Rob showed Chris and I around his magnificent place. We feasted our eyes on some of the most beautiful stacks and stacks of wood. Rob is truely a lumberjock in every form of the word. Not only is he very talented but his ideas and creations are second to none.
I came home with some Black Walnut, a few burls, some Black Walnut stumps and for the life of me i cannot remember the name of this stunning piece of wood. It has so many flakes in it that I could not resist when Rob said ” you like that ?” like no….love …absolutely, he said take it with you.
If any local LJ’s can make the trip it will be worth while and you will be amazed at the supplies he holds.
Thank you Rob, you truely are a Great guy!

Glad you had fun! I understand what your saying,

I was there with my wife this past Sat and spent 3 great hours with Rob and his doggies. We had such a great time and bought some great wood! Will be back there many times. I wrote a blog on it as well. He is amazing and I’m thinking of taking a weeks vacation and apprentice up there for free, but then he know I’m not a woodworker for sure. Like he kept saying, “he wasnt a wood worker either”, yea right!
