As many of my LJ buddies know, My wife an I have been on a cross country trip which is a a story all by itself. We returned home late this week and have been getting out lives back on track after traveling for 7 weeks. We had an awesome trip and saw some remarkable country side. I looked up a few people along the way, like and Air Force buddy that I hadn’t seen in 40 years and a few lumber guys; that will be for another post. We had planned a stop in Northern Alabama to pick up some wheels, axles, and metal parts for a wagon I was planning to build for a team of horses we have. It presented the opportunity to meet LJ Grizz at his home in Verbena.
It was so neat to see and touch some of the projects he has posted. His ability to work with the wood by trying to make the best use of it; his really big heart in making special items for people in his life; I just have to say it was a privilege for me to meet him and consider him a friend. I was delighted to meet him and his wife and his student and spend a little time in his workshop. He knew I had been in search of some wood along our journey and graciously gave me a nice natural edge walnut board to bring home.
Thank you Bob for a nice visit and I can only hope to return the favor. Here’s a photo of some of the stuff wood, stone and other stuff , we collected along our journey.
Well I guess I strike out here. After waiting forever for the last photos to download 2X and LJ says the file size is too big and I can’t figure out how to make them smaller. I’ll have to try this again.
