Dang Karson: I finally got the chance to get there today, Friday, and where were you???

And what’s with this “get rid of the wife bit?”

My husband got to work and the electricity was out in his building so he drove home and he picked me up and we went off to the show (today instead of Saturday). Got there around 1PM and spent 2 hrs. in the first two rows. I found some nice figured Bubinga from Cooks Woods (buy one plank, get the 2nd 30% off). Make sure you go up into the truck of wood, it’s cramped but he has more selection there. I also found a nice piece of Padauk from another vendor. The wood selection was not bad, but looked picked over at the other vendors. Or, maybe I’m just too demanding.

We were hoping to look at some table saws and jointers but there were no big equipment vendors to speak of. What did they do to discourage all of them? There were some other tool vendors but no major equipment like table saws. Very odd and disappointing. My husband managed to find some lathe tools and we managed to help the economy despite the lack of the big ticket machinery.

Peach Tree may has some dust collection parts and the usual sanding accessories. I was hoping to find the dust bag w/ hose attachments for a table saw, but will have to go online.
