Just spent a very enjoyable few hours with @Ronn W when he stopped by on his way to Marc Adams woodworking school in Indiana. A great bowl of chili and some homemade sourdough bread with cupcakes for desert. Lots of great conversation covering all topics but mostly woodworking, thanks for coming by Ronn it was a great time and good to see you again. 67B21CE5-2F3F-4EB1-B34C-37C4917EB3C7.thumb.jpeg.606640ffcfa3046cc0253b097eed289d.jpeg

Hey, I know you guys, didn't we go to different schools together?

I wish it was even close to on the way.  

I'm going to the Ohio Valley Woodturning symposium Oct 18-20 in south east Indiana, then on the way back I'm going to Marc Adams just outside Indianapolis from Oct 21-25.  I'm taking a turning class with Rudy Lopez.

What's @Ronn W going to be learning?

Ronn also came bearing this beautiful piece that now has a permanent place on our kitchen table, a wonderful example of his skill as a woodworker and veneer skills, Thanks again Ronn!

Ronn's veneer silks are impressive. I'm glad i was able to get a crash course from him. Looks like a great addition to your kitchen.

Oh I'd love to have another bandsaw. I was changing from 1 ripping blade to another. I've working with some large kinda nasty material and i don't want to damage a $150 resawing blade. I really want to get a larger saw but my shop location is quite limiting on that front.

I might be getting a fourth one, if I can work out getting it picked up.  I already have one of these, that I keep a 3/16" blade on, but have wanted one with a Carter stabilizer, and tiny blade.  This is the same model as one of the 10" Rikons, without all the fancy accessories of the top end 10".

+1 that the Craftsman 10” is the exact same as the Rikon 10-305. I have the Rikon and have used the Craftsman in my friend’s shop. 
Rikon now offers the 10-306 10” which has 2 speeds and a few other features not on the 10-305.

I've thought for a while now that if I cant' find an Inca 10" on CL I'd wind up with one of these. Really handy machines.

Dave, what’s up with the short beard?

Wife was VERY persuasive this spring, growing it back for the cold Iowa winter

Women use all kinds of tactics to persuade us but as you get older, it’s usually monetary, so they say! :unsure:

What do you guys from Minnesota know about carne asada? Apparently a bunch! Dang! Seriously though, what cut of meat do you buy that as?

Alison and I took our dog with us on a drive up toward Chama and the Brazos Cliffs, stopping in Taos for some pizza. We were about a week early for peak color, but saw plenty anyway.
