No it was not an offer of free wood.
A posting on one of my blogs last night was a offer of most immense proportions. The offer was to allow me to use his shop and his time to work on a project for my wife. Here was his offer
I immediately responded yes. The LumberJock was none other than our respected Lee Jesberger
I mean here was a LumberJock that built 36 kitchens for one customer. Here was a LumberJock that built a $100,000 kitchen for another customer. He was allowing me to be his student for this creation. I’m not a novice, I built a kitchen for my wife while we lived in New Jersey. We are now in Delaware and she wants another one. I thought the hotplate on the kitchen table fit in for local Delawarians.
Of course I responded ”YES”
But later I got to remembering a post that he made previously on another blog of mine and I got to wondering if he was trying to fill out his portfolio with my kitchen that is ”In my estimation” going to put his jobs to shame.
So it might not be him being the teacher and me the student, but, the other way around.
But I don’t care. We have a great time together when we meet once a year, and when we talk on the phone. He is just as friendly and personable as he seems online.
I just hope that I’m not taking his time away from a real paying job. But then again maybe this will be the interview for a new job as his partner.
Nope never back to New Jersey again. Been there done that.
