Thank you Earlextech …......Yes, we had a lot of fun. That is the first wood show I had ever been too. The hat is made by Dave Kratzer you can see his stuff at www.kratzerkraft.com very talented gentleman. We got an even bigger treat when just down the road from us was this awesome church with all the woodworking, stained glass, looked like one of those churches in Europe. It was a nice surprise, the day we left the show on our way home we stopped and too pics of the outside, and then got a big surprise to see the inside. I am going to share my pics with you all. Unbelievable wood work in the church. The church is called the St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption.

Robin, my degree is in commercial photography but after shooting over 500 weddings in the early 80’s I’d had enough. I stopped by that church for the same reason but did not have my camera with me. Your shots are beautiful. Robert Capa said “If you don’t like you photographs, you probably aren’t close enough”. You clearly understand that idea. Beautiful.

I also want to say that the guys turning in the top photo’s are Craig Jackson and Paul Jackson. I got a chance to turn and the tools they were using are much easier to use then the older turning tools….....

Robin,
Thanks for sharing! Very inspiring. Looking forward to all of your tool reviews and blogs.
I know what you mean about the tools. I just received my first low angle wooden spokeshave from James Mursell, a windsor chair maker in England. The fit and feel of the tool as it slices through the wood is awesome – plus the fact that it traveled half-way around the world to join me is pretty cool.
Thanks again.

Hi Mads! It was a very nice weekend. I enjoyed seeing and meeting everybody great bunch of people. The WIA was cool, I really liked seeing all the tools and seeing some of the demonstrations that went on. Like I said previously I got a chance to turn Craig Jackson let me take a crack at it. I loved the “Easy Wood Tools” they were so much easier to use than the old tools I have used before.
