I was looking around for woodworking expo’s or something similar close to me and stumbled across one that is coming to Dallas in October. I mentioned something to my wife and I have a green light to partake in a weekend full woodworking exploration & a road trip to boot….lol

I got to thinking I couldn’t be the only L.J. attending, and thought this may be a great chance for some of us Texas (or surrounding area) Lumber Jock to finally shake the hands of some friendly names. I just thought it may be a cool idea.

Here is the link to the show : “The Wood Working Shows

Looks like the date is October 22-24, 2010 so maybe this will be enough heads up for anyone wanting to attend. I have never had a chance to see anything like this so I don’t know what to expect really. I do know the main site tells of a bunch of clinics on all sorts of topics (I am always down for learning some new stuff), demonstrations, drawings, etc…

Just wanted to drop a line to see what some of my fellow Texas L.J. thought. I have nothing specifically in mind other than the location. It could be as simple as us meeting at the show, or meeting up at a restaurant after, etc… Just thinking out loud here….

Very cool to hear Russ. I have put a bug in the ear of a few other Texas L.J. before posting this up and looks like we may have a few going in on this. Hopefully this pans out. I think it will be pretty cool….

We need to start brainstorming ideas on what we could do. Like I mentioned earlier it could be as simple as meeting there at the show… or snagging dinner at a local restaurant that evening.

Awesome to see some more maybes.

Hey Russ, how long of a drive is that for you? I know I will be looking at roughly a 3 hour drive to make it.

Dan, I’ll have a very similar commute. Looks like we were supposed to go to Ren Faire in Plantersville so it’s up in the air right now. I’m a little bummed.

I “Really” hate to have to bail on this one, but I had a few things turn up that is going to make where I can’t go. You know how it goes… Just ain’t no fun being a grown up sometimes…lol

Now in saying that I expect to see a bunch of pictures. Be sure to keep us fellow Lumber Jocks informed on how it was.
