I forgot to post this weds.

Jim Jakosh invited me into his shop to see his sign making set up. He has an awesome shop or 2. The main part of his shop is in his basement and he does his turning in his garage. I would kill for a shop his size. Anyway, it was nice to visit with another fellow woodworker and also he and I are in the same guild together. Tuesday night at our meeting we went on a field trip to a guy who had an antique woodworking shop set up that was driven by a belt and pulley system. I was in awe of the work that this guy had put into restoring all the old equipment. I will post pics later of the shop tour. Unfortunately I did not take pictures at Jim’s. Oh well maybe another time.

Til next time keep the sawdust flying

Rustic:
I bet that visit to the antique wood shop was fantastic. I know I love visiting those kinds of places.

Always great when LJ’s get together. Jim is a great guy. Got to meet him when he was in Arizona. Had lots of fun. Would love to get out his way one day.
