« Part 84: The "Magic List" is Working Part 85 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 86: I'm Baaaack! What a terrific day! »

This one is going to be short and sweet. I’m heading out this morning for Halifax and East Coast Hardwood – one of the best wood stores I have ever seen! I know you will all be jealous but I only go a couple of times a year so give me my due :)

I promise to have some pictures of this place so you can see how cool it is. I can’t wait to see what I will come home with either. It always inspires me. We are also planning to hit a couple of tool places, as well as Lee Valley Tools and I am going to try to get some Corian to scroll saw. We are heading out early so I am actually typing this on Thursday night.

I did finish cutting my new project, but I didn’t get to do the finishing on it. I promise I will have pictures of it too when I am done with it. I like it and it came out pretty good. It was a different type of cutting than the geometric stuff that I have been doing lately and loads of fun to do.

Here is a teaser picture of part of it for you to see:

That’s all I am going to show you for now By the time you are reading this I will be on my way. I hope you have a great day, and I know I will!

Happy Friday everyone!

Have a good safe trip. I hope that it turns out to be more profitable than my trip was yesterday.

Happy trip and good luck. You deserve to take a short break away from your scroll saw and drawing board. Thanks for the photos in your galery. God bless..

How does East Coast Specialty Hardwood compare to Halifax Specialty Hardwoods?
