Well the first LumberJock picnic in Michigan was a huge success. Russel showed up and so did DHG. After a tour of my shop we decided to visit another LumberJock who was doing a craft show in the area. Tearen was glad that we dropped in. I made some compasses for evryone to take home. Russel also brought some pens that he had turned. He let each LJ pick one and even my wife got one. Tearen I have yours here waiting for you. We got back from the craft show and grilled brats and chicken. DHG had brought a prototype of a folding table that he had made. Everyone was impressed. I was a little nervous at first, but Russel made it easier as he is very easy to talk to. We took some pictures that I will be posting soon (I need to find my camera cable to downoad the pics). I will post them as soon as I can. We are talking about having another one in the fall. It may be in Russel’s area. Tearen had dropped some stuff off on Friday for everyone to pick through. Everyone liked the veneer.
Thanks to evryone for making this a hit. Looking forward to the next one where more people will hopefully be able to come.
This truely is a very friendly site. I have new friends now.
For those who were not able to attend the event just PM me and we can get together anytime.
