To Dad’s lumberjock buddies

I know Dad enjoyed to share his love of woodworking on this site and the banter with his buddies

I intend to finish his final wood turning project he’d started, but was to weak to finish.

Some of his beloved wood offcuts that he could not bare to part with, will be interned with him.

Very, very sad. I got a lot of enjoyment seeing his projects by way of forum emails. After realizing that my poor health will never allow me back in my shed I’ve arranged to give away the total contents of my shed (shop) to family and friends.

Tony was my very first Buddy on LJs. He set the tone for me. Ian, your dad was a blessing to many. I can’t tell you how sad I am right now.
