« Part 1: I visited with fellow LJ - Grizzman. Part 2 of Visit with a fellow LumberJock series no next part

My work allows me to travel some around the great state of Alabama where I live. I have become aware of several of the LJ’s that also are residents of Alabama. Anyway, when the opportunity is there, I am trying to go and visit with these guys. On Tuesday of this past week, I was able to go by and visit with Beginning Woodworker for a little while. I was in between business meetings, so we only had a short visit, but we were able to visit for a little while. He has a nice home and has obviously spent a lot of time decorating the yard of his home. He showed me his shop. It is small, but well organized and he has some nice stuff. I got to see the Morris chairs that many of us have followed as he built them. Nice work Charles. He is in the beginning of building a new work bench. I’m sure it will be a very good bench when he is done with it.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to come and visit.

It always makes me feel great to read a story like this. In this internet world, this site is unique in the character of its members. At least that’s how I see it.

That’s great, Doc. I’ll bet that you both had a wonderful visit with each other.

Always so nice to hear LJ’s meet.
Yes Beginning woodworker has grown up! He is no more beginner, nice tools and nice work, I have followed.
Best thoughts,
