Over the last few weeks I’ve had the pleasure of meeting lots of great LJ’s. First I got to meet the infamous Karson and a few others at the Baltimore woodworking show (you can read about it here). The next weekend I trekked to Springfield, MA for the WoodWorks event where I got to meet even more Lumberjocks (I’ll try to get some pics and a blog entry together in the next day or two). And this past weekend I travelled to Columbus, OH for the woodworking show where I met even more LJ’s. It’s been great getting to meet so many Lumberjocks from all over so, I thought I let the Indy LJ’s know that I’m headed your way in just about 10 days for the woodworking show on January 30, 31 and February 1st. If you get a chance, stop by the booth and say hello (I’ll be the guy doing the hand cut dovetail demo). I may even convince you to jump in and try cutting a set of dovetails yourself or worse yet, I might ask someone to take our picture :) If you’re coming to Indy, let me know so I can try to keep an eye open for you. I look forward to meeting LOTS of Lumberjocks in Indianapolis!
