I spend Thursday 5/7 taking my son to my daughters home to spend the week while my wife was out of town. Our first stop was at Greg McNabbs home in West Virginia.
LJ Dave with one of Greg’s dogs.
The three of us with Greg at his home.
I had to buy a new camera about 15 minutes from Greg’s home. So excuse the second picture.
We went out to a local Greek Diner to have a nice meal.
It was then on to Woodstock, Virginia to my daughters, the Kramers
Albert with my latest granddaughter.
Today I went to the shop of Charles Neil
I walked in and Charles was working on this giant slab of Bubinga. 36” wide 144” long and 2” thick.
He has already built the Bubinga Dinning Room table and this slab is for making the chairs.
The outer edges of the slab will be used for steam bending of the legs and the center Cathedral grain will be used to make the seat bottoms.
We walked into the back room and he showed me some buckets that he just completed.
There sitting on a roll around cart was this gigantic Bombay Chest.
A customer paid a deposit and then disappeared. No trace, so the chest sits in the back room.
Charles and I posed for a group picture.
Before I left I made a visit to the water closet, and I had to walk through a treasure trove of great looking woods.
As so the day ended after a 5 hr drive back home. It’s nice to visit LJ’ers, but great to get back to your own shop.
