Well now that Verizon has stopped digging up my front yard and my cable modem is back online I can post this.
This past weekend was the Chantilly, VA woodworking show. I was able to get some time on Friday and Saturday to head out there. On Friday I met up with Karson and Greg as noted here in Karon's Blog.
On Saturday I again met up with Greg as well as his brother Adrian and their families. I was happy to meet everyone. Thanks for all the input on various tools and also some great ideas.
I did not have a lot of money to spend but did manage to get a few smaller things for my shop. As noted below in the pictures .
The tshirt was a freebie to celebrate 100 25 years of the Woodworking Show.
Those scrapers work pretty good some one was sell them in a used tool bay, supposedly WWII surplus. I hope to be able to learn to use them and that scraper set there. We’ll see how the clamps work out, I bought some last year and they were great, this year they only had 36” and 48” but at $5 a piece I decided to add them to my growing arsenal.
Finally got myself a set of headphones, man they make that router sound different. :). Hopefully I will be posting a drill press table in the not to distant future which is where most of that mini-T-track is going.
Most of my money that day went towards all of those new router bits you see in the boxes, I have been playing with making signs per a request I got from my father-in-law, so needed a few decent bits.
And this also:
Company called Got Logs. actually sells boards that are priced as marked not per bd ft. A lot of them may have some issues to work around and I wish I had bought some that I saw earlier in the day. But I got these two pieces of Eastern Red Cedar for only $9, I have a project already in mind and my theory was for the price I really can not go wrong.
Thanks All for looking.
