Topic tags/keywords: talk shop friend lumberjock meeting

I had the opportunity on this past Tuesday to meet up with a fellow LumberJock “Woodenwizard” (John). He sent me a message a few weeks ago saying that he had a daughter that lived here in Salt Lake and wondered if I would like to meet up for a cup of coffee when he came over to visit from Colorado. Of course I said yes. Well he came over this week and I invited him to come over to the house and have a cup and talk shop.

We had a great visit. Showed him some of the clocks and frames that I made and then out to the shop where we could compare notes on woodworking machines and techniques. John told me about the marquetry saw that he made from a drawer slide and some brake line, he has it posted here on LumberJocks, quite a interesting story and a neat saw. Had a great time and made a new friend. So if you ever have a chance to meet up with a fellow LumberJock make sure to take advantage of the opportunity. (Sorry no pictures, didn’t think of it until just now….)

I would like to meet up with fellow LJers also. I know Chicowoodnut lives just 89 miles from me and Odie is probably around 125 miles away I think. Anyone else live in northern Ca.?

I would love to have fellow LJ’s come by the shop, I have a commercial Bunn coffee maker and grinder for the am, and they must bring the beer for the pm. Just don’t know how many go past Elma WA.

Pete, It is fun to meet fellow LJ’ers. Ya never know I may take you up on coming by your shop. I have daughters that live in Washington. One in Seattle and the other in Rainier.

Doug, Story swapping is great, and to meet a kindred woodworker is even better.

Hey Max!

Just got back to Colorado. It was great to meet, have a cup and talk sawdust. I truly enjoyed the time. Sorry wasn’t able to get back to you before hand. I had Granddaughter choir program, and then awards for several grandkids and then had to watch granddaughter in her first cheerleading program. Well at any rate we stayed very busy. Don’t know when we will be back to Salt Lake but when we do come back, I will look forward to getting together.

This forum has been great! There are so many talented, friendly, helpful people. It was a real plus to be able to meet one and share.

Hope everyone has a Blessed weekend.

I think that’s great y’all got together, I can imagine it was fun.

This reminds me that I think this site needs some sort of search feature for other members. Where you could search a for members in your state or so many miles from your zip code. This shouldn’t be to complicated to pull off, just ask people to put their zipcode, or town and state on their profiles.

I know I spent about 20 minutes the other day going through the pages of members trying to find someone near me. No luck though…....
