I finally met a live LJ face to face today.

Several months ago I mentioned the site to a colleague who signed up as Spud72. Well it just so happens that Spud72 was in my neck of the woods today and he popped by for a visit. It was very short however we did manage to talk a little wwing. It must be great for you folks who get to enjoy an LJ Picnic.

Spud is in the process of making a table and fine tuning his shop. I’m hoping some pics from both will be coming soon.

Great to meet you Spud . . . and by the way . . . I spoke to the individual with your cutting board and they are going to bring it by for a viewing.

Randomly met a couple as well. Actually, I realized one lives 4 houses down. He’s a hand-tool guy, so my neighbors (and myself) didn’t realize WWing was being done. They probably like him more.

A LJ owns the local WW store, hard not to bump into her. Her husband pointed out CedarFreak to me one day as we were both in the store.

Yeah, meeting face to face is cool. I’m still waiting for you to wander west.

I have met a number of Lumberjocks.

I even had one recognize me at my local Rockler. From that little picture no less.

It’s always enjoyable to meet a fellow Lumberjock.

I believed Spud72 recognized me from my pic . . . but being the only guy in a room full of women I would have been shocked if he never. :-)
