What’s happening in the shop for August 30, 2010. Just got back from the IWF show. It was a lot smaller than in the past. Usually there are three buildings. This year there were only two. Some of the companies I make a point to see each year or ones that I planned on seeing weren’t even there.

I went with the intension of buying a line/system boring machine for shelf supports and fixed shelf attachments points. I think I talked myself out of it and will go with the Festol Domino and a cheaper line boring machine.

It was still a good and productive trip. I went to four sessions and learned a lot. Also did some research on CNC router to purchase in a couple years.

Now back to the real world. I am so far behind, I don’t know what to start on first. I will build a horizontal murphy bed that is already due, and get a twin bed ready for finish and need to finish a large murphy bed group that will be delivered Friday. Enough typing and back to work.

That’s why I didn’t go to ANY shows for the last 2 years.

Have your say...
