    We are in Pensylvania right now on our way south. If we find the warehouse we will pass by. I hope we can locate.

    Hi Diane,
    The warehouse is right on PA Route 72. The office is on Broad Street. If you can find the warehouse, they can give you directions to the office. I'd love to meet you in person.

      Well Bob, I found the office first as you know. Had a most wonderful visit. Thank you for the tour of the building. I love those old columns. If ever they want to re-decorate I will take them. LOL
      You and Shannon are beautiful people. It was well worth the detour.
      And after you pointed out the warehouse I spent $81. Lots of reading for the trip and tons of planning.
      Thanks to you both.

        I'm so jealous Diane...
        I wish I could make that trip...I'd be afraid of going to the warehouse though...I don't know if I could stop at $81...Then I'd have to hitch hike home... lol

          I think Jim said it best! That is way cool, Diane.

          Merry Christmas.

            Hi Diane - well done! - you are one fortunate lady and I envy you.

            So, what books did you purchase?

                Yes also waiting for the open house...hint hint. Will have to name the books later because they are in the RV. But it's a good thing I already had some of the books from the last few scratch and dent sales...or the bill would have been a lot worse.
                I am so happy that I got to stop and visit. I talked for a few hours with hubby about the visit. I was in heaven.

                      It was a pleasure to meet you in person, Diane! I'm glad you stopped in, and I'm glad you found some books!!! Now, get reading that Woodcarving Illustrated; you can carve as Hubby drives <GRIN>

                        Oh, my! Is no place sacred from the dust and chips of a woodworker??
                        Not even the CAR??
                        I've read posts on here about folks having their scrollsaw in the bedroom or living room and seen pictures of wood projects laid all out in their kitchens.....
                        But I have yet to see a car used as a carving station.
                        But I'm sure if a woodcrafter wants to do his or her hobby....any place is up for grabs.

                          If it was possible I would carve or cut in the RV but.....I do most of the driving so it would be very dangerous. I've already checked out the magazine and want to try those trees. Looks simple enough. But it has to wait until I get back home.
