I signed up to attend Experience PRS 2009. It’s a Manufacturer show of the PRS guitars and also workshops, product demos and lots of Music Concerts. It’s all free if you sign-up before a cut of date.

I went as a guest on the Friday and Sat, Sept 25 and 26 2009. It was more crowded on Friday than it w...
Charles Rohlfs Oak Desk, Stickley Ellis Table & Iconic Crafts, Nelson Atkins Art Gallery Kansas City
Wow! I made it, I finally made it, and oh what a surprise to find a museum with Iconic Furniture pieces intermixed with a lot of European, Asian, Native American, Egyptian, and some strange Contemporary Stuff that someone else calls “art”. ————————- WARNING: If you are easily offended by my silly notions of what looks good and is well built, please don’t read any farther. I’m just giving my opinions, that is what ...
Te Wai Pounamu, Aeteoroa- the Maori name for the south island of New Zealand.

A New Toy For Work:) I just got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS6 for recording my work. One of the great things about it is that it has a 25mm wide angle lens. This is makes it great for taking pictures of my installed work in small rooms.

This video was entirely shot with this camera (except for the photos of the camera itself:) Music: ...
I’m a part of this great website because I am a woodworker and enjoy new adventures into woodworking with my LJ friends but my passion is for woodcarving. I have been carving for about 14 years and have taken a couple of classes from Wayne Barton the world renowned chip carver. Wayne Barton not only gives classes but because he studied carving in Switzerland he also puts together a 12 day Swiss tour every year. The wife and I have been saving our money for the Swiss trip ever since my f...
