If you have never seen this blog, I highly recommend it, and guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Tom does a LOT for the woodworking community, and he is truly a nice guy.

He was kind enough to put me in his write-up for today and I thought that was pretty neat.

We had a lot of fun at the Tampa Woodworking Show, and I spent my whole allowance (and then some…) lol

(Now, to go find somewhere to hide the packages in the shop….)

-- Eric down in sunny Florida.

Tom is always so excited, when we were talking at the show this weekend it was hard for him to keep his feet on the ground!

Looks like you were having fun, Eric. I was on call this weekend, and spent my spare time gearing up for electronic medical records. Probably no shop time for the next month, maybe a little putter time to just relax…but nothing big.

Wish I could have been down there with you. This winter has had a least one record breaking cold month, January, and we are about to break the winter record for amount of snow fall. Right now it is 15 deg, and it should be close to 30 deg. Gad zooks!

So have a good one for me, stay warm….......

Dang, I was at the Tampa Woodworking Show sat as well, missed you! It seemed a bit smaller than last year but more “classes” this year. I went way over my budget but was smiling!

Thanks for showing us Tampa Eric. Try again David. It faltered when I tried it, but I got lucky the 2nd time.

Tom is a heck of a nice guy isn’t he Eric? You can’t help but be drawn in by the enthusiasm. I first met him a few months ago and felt that we really hit it off.

Gosh, what are you guys saying behind my back? :-)

It was great meeting you Eric. After all of these years of reading your comments on the site, it was a total blast getting to meet you in person. And, yes, that was my favorite shot of the day!

And, Sam, I can’t help but be excited around woodworking tools.. Can you blame a guy? :-)
