I had the most pleasant visit from Karson Morrison and his son David, yesterday. We spent a couple of hours talking shop, wood and how we got to where we are.
David showed me the really neat inlay he learned how to do from acanthuscarver. The inlay was in a really nice sanding block.
Karson showed me some of the super toys their club makes for kids at Christmas. He also had the wooden platter that JefftheWoodWacker made, with him. I can tell you this piece is AWESOME!!! http://lumberjocks.com/projects/18778. He also had a beautiful piece of Beech. The grain was absolutely incredible.
Top top it all off, Karson gave me 3 blanks to make some rolling pins. I finally am going to get a chance to work with woods that are not native to south central Pennsylvania! He gave me a piece of Sepal and African Mahogany. A third piece was Black Cherry (I think).
Thanks, Karson and David for a most excellent visit and the presents!
