  • You never know who you will meet

    The Wife and I got a treat yesterday (Sat) morning, I took her out for her birthday breakfast to one of our local family restaurants and setting up at the main entrance was this guy who does wood carvings and burnings, he had several roosters out which the wife just loves so we stopped to look, the gentleman introduced himself to us and explained what he did and how, Lisa loved his work and bought a heart with our names burned into it with tiny red hearts burned all around it, turns out his name is Chris Lubkemann hes from Lancaster PA and is a bonifide Fox Chaple author of several wood carving and burning books and belongs to the wood carvers forum

    That is always neat to run into someone like that. It is so neat to meet talents from different modalities. It stimulates interest and expands your horizons.

        I've got one of his books. I've made a ton of the flowers and the little pine trees. People love them. What a treat for you to have met him!

          I met him at the Open House at Fox Chapel and he had a group of children mesmerized watching him. Isn't he a wonderful man? He must be "wintering" in Florida.

            yes Betty he is a wonderful person and a great showman he wasn't setup maybe 15 min he was already drawing a crowd and he took time to greet each person too, as for wintering I am not sure he had a huge list of cities he was going to be at each day, I think it wwas more of a tour for him

              I met Chris at the open house and explained to him how many times I watched his DIY show on rooster carving. He was a wealth of information that he readily passed on to whomever was interested. It was a very enjoyable time. Still can't get the hang of that dang rooster.

                Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
