The show season is nearly upon us here in the east. I’ll be trekking out to some of The Woodworking Shows again this year and I’m wondering if any of my fellow Lumberjocks will be there?

I’ve got a couple of new demos geared up for this show season but you’ll have to come to the show to see and participate in one. Let’s just say one of the demos will teach/test your basic carving skills.

The show is always a good time. It’s even better when I get to talk with Lumberjocks the entire weekend. So, if you haven’t been to one before, and you’re in the Baltimore area, make sure to trek out and say hello. I think it’s worth the trip.

I was on the fence about this and was looking at the site this morning. You are not mentioned anywhere on their page. This put me over the top and I’ll be there. It will be good to see you again Chuck. Are you doing the same thing each day or is one day/time better than another?

Chuck: David and I will be there on Friday. along with about 6-7 other members of our woodworking club. Will see you there.

I saw that you were doing a carving and a dovetail demo with audience participation.

Turn Around, I’m right here behind you.

We’ll the ride to the show didn’t work out for the Friday trip so we made it on Sat.

Chuck and I were talking and he was giving my son David a hard time. At the same time he was giving Jack Dalton a hand-cut dovetails a lesson.

We were having a great talk, as I was getting ready to leave his booth, he asked if I’d seen Tommy. I told him no, I didn’t know that Tommy was going to be at the show. So we headed across the venue to where Tommy was sitting in a Woodcraft booth. Tommy’s TV program is sponsored by Woodcraft. I walked up and Tommy stuck out his hand and said, “Karson it’s great to meat you”

As we were standing there talking someone walked up and slapped me on the shoulder. It was Charles Neil. He was there with his wife Sherri as a customer not as an official member of the show.

So we had our picture taken with all of us. But it’s on Charles Camera so we’ll have to wait for him to post it.

I had a great visit with Tommy and Charles. Charles and I must have talked for about 1/2 hour.

A great visit with a bunch of LumberJocks. While we were talking Steve Palm walked up and so that was my visit with Lumber Jocks at the Wood Show.

Karson, I’m sure we passed several times without knowing it. The crowds were pretty good and it was great to see so many turn out. Sorry I missed you.

Shannon: I was wearing my LumberJocks shirt. The only one that I say there I might add.

Did you get to meet Tommy and Chuck?

Sorry we missed one another.

Too many shiny tools to notice a shirt I guess. Yes I spent quite a bit of time with Chuck and joined him a few others for dinner on Friday night. Tommy was there too. I was a fun evening. I did see Charles at lunchtime but he was deep in conversation with Tommy so I didn’t want to interrupt. There will be another time.

Karson,

Shannon has had the “pleasure” of meeting me prior to the Baltimore show. Surprisingly, he still stopped by my booth!

It was a great time at the show. Glad you and David made it (finally). He still needs to step up and cut some dovetails. I won’t let him off so easy in Chantilly.

Chuck: He’s very low on the committment stage of life. It’s hard to get him to give an answer, as you noticed in Baltimore. So you don’t ask, you just say come on around here and start doing it.

Thanks for your support for trying to keep him active in doing things. He has done a couple of the inlay diamonds and has done a great job.

Imagine…a 14 yo boy being low on the committment stage…shocking.

He’s a great kid but I’ll nudge him harder in Chantilly.
