* the beard is gone again!  I'm trying to look employable!  Plus it makes it a lot nicer to eat wings without the beard.

I thought hipster beards were the in thing in the NYC area? What do they call it Lumbersexual? LOL absurd city people.

I think it's concentrated in Brooklyn (and unemployed woodworkers in greenwich, ct).

How'd you do on the exchange rate?  I don't think it ever really got better, did it?

Not really. I think it cost me around 610$.

Sadly, as predicted I'll be travelling with the family that week.  Sorry I'll be missing it, it's not quite in my back yard but it's close enough I wouldn't have needed a hotel.

I'm not sure if I can. Just curious, are you going to the classes, or just walking the floor?

Im walking the floor until i get into a classroom. Im definitely going to the classes given by Mike P, Garret Hack and Steve Latta !! Some of my fave woodworkers.

I would like to go but can't swing it this year, class budget is still limited so I would rather spend the money on one large one than a bunch of few hour long ones.

I was able to see Steve Latta do a demo locally on inlay/banding/sandshading/bell flowers for about 3 hours and I agree with you Shane, he is awesome (and super mellow)

That's awesome Shane.  I'm with you on Garrett Hack, he's the man.  His presence alone would have been worth the trip.  Cool stuff.

Thanks for posting all those pics Shane.  I wish I could have gone.  Our family Easter vacation and the timing of this event did not work out too well for me.  Maybe next year.

No doubt you are, and I'd like to check out your sleeve, I like good color work..... Why don't you bring it to Amana, Iowa to the "Handworks" show May 19th and 20th.  I promise you that as good and fine a Canadian you are, a 13 year old boy learned more in that one month than I've learned since.  That 17 year old, turned me every way but loose.

Yeah, I guess I'd better back off that line of thinking.  But damn it was the greatest time of my young life.   Seriously though, there are three of us going to the Handworks show in Iowa in a few weeks, any chance you could join us?  It's all about hand tools and St. Roy will be there Saturday morning giving a lecture.  It'll be me, Ken Cooper and Dave Aka: treeslayer, Interestingly, the three of us have never met either.

We'll see what next year has in store for me.   Sorry you can't make it, would really like to meet my favorite second place Canadian.

Oh man! You got to meet Matt Kenney. I follow him on instagram and really dig everything he does.

 

Ya he is a nice guy. The class I took with him was a design class which was pretty good. I found myself fighting to stay awake but i think it was more the fault of the 5 lbs of food I ate right before I went to his class. Food coma will getchya everytime !
