Here’s a coincidence. Both of you have done a marquetry day at my shop.
......... and I’ve only done five of them.

I’m sure ( I think!) Gene represented the Stumpy Nubbers with grace and dignity….
Well, he at least represented us!!!

Great Photo Jim…

Really nice to see people getting together and talking . Jim, you are right, LJs is a great site to contact other wood workers from all over the world.

If I lived 4 hours away we could be drinking coffee and talking about wood work and our shops. If ever I get to America again we will do just that. 1986 was the last time I was over there. I love America. I met some wonderful people.

Regards,

Cliff.

Hi all. Woodworking is such a great friendship activity. I love it.
I like to meet at least one LJ each winter.
We both made the same packet on the Chevalet at Paul’s house in Green Valley. What a coincidence!!

Hi Pete and Cliff. I’d sure like to come back to New Zealand and Australia now that I have so many buddies over there. I could be there a month at least!!

Hi Mark, I’m on the right.

Cheers, Jim

Well, darn my hide anyhow.
Didn’t see this till today.
Had a great time visiting with Jim. Picked up some great tips and local resources, too. Jim is a great guy and pretty darned clever, too.
As Grumpy says, this a great community.
