I posted a blog about the fund raiser that our woodworking club did and thought I would add a few more pictures.

Looks like every age was having fun Keith!
Good way to keep woodworking vibrant through all generations!

Christopher,
It was in Charlotte. about 10 miles from Lansing, just off I-69.

Eric,
The kids had a good time with the race track. The track was 16’ long. The kids would let the cars go and run to catch the cars and then do it again and again.

Looks like lots of fun. I’m guessing a lot of people showed up.

Keith,

Genuine thanks for posting this. Events like this are always a treat. The interactive feature inherent in woodworking makes for a fabulous show-event, fundraiser. Where and when woodworkers can display their skills, adults and kids are usually spellbound by a woodworker in action—even for a brief moment or so.

Why more woodworking clubs and organizations do not organize and participate in shows like these is a sad, unfortunate puzzle that does no one any good.

Also… The smart ladies have their protective eyewear on, why doesn’t the “old pro” have his on?

That’s a helluva wrong example.

Hi PineInTheAsh,
“Spellbound” perfect choice of words.
You are so right. The second that one of the tools started a crowd gathered.
eye wear…I hear ya.

Christoper,
I know there is a club in Midland but haven’t heard of one in Mt. Pleasant area.
I’ll check around to see if any of our members know of any.

The wood expo always starts the Friday after Labor day.
I am sorry you guys could not make it to the show. It would have cool to meet some fellow lumberjocks.
Rick,
My son lives in GR. Sometime when I am over that we should get together for a cup of coffee.

Mike,
Do you have relatives in the Mid-Michigan area or did you make the trip to buy lumber?
