Now That Was Fun!


The Axminster show was a blast! It was great to meet up with friends new and old (and to put faces to names). Spent most of the day chatting instead of shopping........ Bought a few nik-naks for the workshop-saw, chisel, beading tool, etc. Nothing crazy (or too expensive)
Spent some quality time in the shop this weekend. Legs are carved, doors almost finished, stock for the back ready. Just the "floor" to work out and this piece is going to be finished. Maybe.......

Here's a link to my Tool Show Report. Enjoy!

Really nice to get to meet in person at last, Phil. And we avoided an explosion of gloats very well I thought :~) Not that I'd have had a prayer... ;~)

Alf-It was great to meet up! And as you say, almost a gloat-free zone. Either we have great will-power or there just wasn't enough shiny things to tempt.....
Don't let Mike know you bought another L-N dovetail saw, though ;)

Of course it would have been better to have seen this before I *knew* Alf got a LN saw!

But still, 'tis a good saw and nothing I am making is any better, really. A couple different options and styles, though. Well, you can choose the ppi and lengths...and of course, there will be kits of each saw available (except the Gent's). But don't tell anyone yet.
