Hello everyone, sorry I haven’t been around. Been working days & nights to get ahead of this economy. Unfortunately I’m the bearer of bad news. Paulo Marin from Glaser called me today to inform me that Jerry Glaser passed away yesterday. As most turners know, Jerry was one of the most influential turners & turning tool designers to ever come to be. I had the pleasure to meet him in person a while back when Paulo surprised me & took me to his home. He was a very kind, pleasant man. I considered it an honor to be in his presence. I also got to see some of his work, what a talented man he was. So I would ask that you take a moment and say a prayer for the man who touched so many of us with his tools and talent. God bless you Jerry. And to you Paulo, you are the right man to carry the torch, thanks for keeping with the excellence that Jerry began with. You’ve done an incredible job.

I’ll be here more frequently soon, I’m building a wine cellar, an entertainment center, a few humidors, running my car audio business & refinishing my kitchen. Basically another day in the office. Talk to you soon everyone.

That is a real shame. He had what it takes to be great. Thanks for the notice.
