Woodworking Show Update:

There will not be a fall Woodworking Show Season. Those shows will begin in January, 2016 and have 13 shows scheduled. The 2016 season will go into April. The schedule will be posted shortly on www.thewoodworkingshows.com



I am very reluctant to post this, but I agree with the message 100%. As summer draws to a close and the fall season quickly arrives, we anticipate the coming of the Christmas Season. The political correctness so prevalent in our society attempts to squelch our traditions and celebrated customs handed down from our very wise parents and grandparents only after living long enough to separate truth from fiction. If we have a reliable guide to help us through this life, we will find it much easier going during the tough times.

Jeff Reagan publishes a daily newsletter and we have much in common, I think we are reading from the same play book. It is a quick read and I highly recommend it, especially to those of us with friends and family just starting out together, or with married children. It is not bad advice for us too.

We sell so many Longworth Chucks that we had been out-of-stock on some sizes. We bring them in by the container so it takes a while. All sizes are now available for immediate delivery.

A New Section added to the Web Site

I have no illusions that I have cornered the market on all of the clever ideas for woodturners, or just in general for that matter. I am inviting you to drop me a note with a simple question: "Why doesn't someone invent something that will . . . ? Then tell me what you wish someone would invent.

I make no promises of compensation of any kind. You will simply be asking the question. I do plan to offer a prize of your choice of any 3 DVD's on my web site each quarter for the best question submitted. However, it will be in my sole discretion if any of the ideas are worth a reward. I may elect not to offer any prize at all. If your question leads to an idea which ultimately makes me millions of dollars, you have my undying gratitude, but no compensation, in my sole discretion. Having said that, what is your question?
