This morning I had the honor of meeting famed LumberJock member Thos. Angle and his lovely wife Carleen. They are just as genuinely nice in person as they are online.
We did not have much time to visit this morning as they are just heading back to Oregon. They will have to make a couple of trips to complete their move to Wyoming. They will be about 2 hours away so I am sure that we will have more opportunities to get together. Everything within 2 hours is considered local in Big Sky Country.
The visit was short and sadly, they did not get to meet my wife Rita because she was at work. But Thos. and Carleen got a tour of the shop and my projects. Now Thos. can vouch for what a hack that I am;) I was quite flattered by the nice things that he said about my work and the fact that he immediately recognized the pieces. I was also excited to show off my Shea Handplane and Leaf Box by Blake.
Well I look forward to Thos. and Carleen visiting again and them getting to meet Rita instead of just me and the dogs. So until then Thos. – Travel Safe.
Peace, Love, & Woodworking
