Yesterday I got a visit from LJ Gene Howe who lives 4 hours away up in Snowflake, Az. He was on his way to Tucson after picking up a piece in Phoenix for his next project. We had a good time and could have talked for many more hours on wood projects, solar energy, and our good friend, John Goodwin, at the Dead Tree Salvage sawmill.

It is sure nice to meet face to face with with someone you talk to here on Lumberjocks. This is such a great site for making woodworking friends all over the world.

Cheers, Jim

Here’s a coincidence. Both of you have done a marquetry day at my shop.
......... and I’ve only done five of them.

I’m sure ( I think!) Gene represented the Stumpy Nubbers with grace and dignity….
Well, he at least represented us!!!

Glad a good time was had….

Great Photo Jim…

Really nice to see people getting together and talking . Jim, you are right, LJs is a great site to contact other wood workers from all over the world.

If I lived 4 hours away we could be drinking coffee and talking about wood work and our shops. If ever I get to America again we will do just that. 1986 was the last time I was over there. I love America. I met some wonderful people.

Regards,

Cliff.

Hi all. Woodworking is such a great friendship activity. I love it.
I like to meet at least one LJ each winter.
We both made the same packet on the Chevalet at Paul’s house in Green Valley. What a coincidence!!

Hi Pete and Cliff. I’d sure like to come back to New Zealand and Australia now that I have so many buddies over there. I could be there a month at least!!

Hi Mark, I’m on the right.

Cheers, Jim
