This past weekend there was an estate sale in Ottawa, IL. The owner of the estate apparently was a huge tool collector, because there were more planes on sale there than I’ve ever seen in my life. For example, the owner had five No. 113s, at least five #12s, more block and bench planes than I could keep track of, and the ever elusive and ever-so-tiny Stanley #1. Since I’ve been looking for a few things, I figured I might as well make the 1:15 drive from Downers Grove and ...

Well, we made it through all three days of the Woodworking Show and had a great time. I think one of us even left without lightening his wallet at all so we are going to get him to a doctor quick.

We had a lot people stop by and pick up buttons. Some people that stopped by said they had been to LumberJocks before b...

Chicago Lumberjocks Meetup/Woodworking Show December 2009 #2: Need some response if LumberJocks is going to be a part of this
I saw the photos from the Sacramento event and it looks like everyone had a really good time. You can check out the pictures here and here. You can look at the previous post in this blog for more information on the Chicago event. We need some people to at least say they are going to be attending the show. Ideally we would have some people who would be willing to sit at a LumberJocks booth for an hour or even give a short (15 minute) class. I need to get back to the people at the Woodwor...
