I had a "Creeker Visit" From none other than Jason himself.:D We did breakfast and had a great chat about woodworking. I showed him some of my work and the shop. He was in town on business,and had some time to share. He used to live here, But by the time we hooked up he was already in the process of moving.:( Sorry no pics, I'll quess you'll just have to take my word for it.:rolleyes: Thanks, Jason.

Unacceptable!!! 2 good SMCers and no pics....Guess it didn't happen... I think Jason used to live/work in that general area. Oh well, we like you both anyway!!

Congrats Russ.....and that's OK.....

I had a shop visiter earlier this week....Mr. Jim Hagar......and just LOVED the visit with Jim Hagar. Don't have pics either since I was spraying lacquer and it was getting dark, and the earth was rotating in the wrong directions....and.... :rolleyes: :D

Hey all! Yea we knew that the 'no pics' thing was going to be a problem :p We didn't have a third person to take a picture of us though?! We were going to go to the mall and get in a picture booth together, but figured this wouldn't be good for a first visit :p :D

Seriously, it was great to visit with Russ and see his wood shop and his house filled with all the beauties that have come from his shop. His maple kitchen is inspiring. And his finishing abilities are first rate. I wish a picture could show off the finish he put on his kitchen table, but it wouldn't come close anyway - it's that good. And the shop was filled with all kinds of goodies that I wish I had. Thanks Russ for the hospitality! It was great to get together.

If you're ever Chicago way, be sure to look up Russ - he's very knowledgeable about woodworking and a kind, generous and considerate man.
