    You have some very talented members. Thanks for sharing. I really like the Mary and Jesus segmentation in picture 5. Any idea who the pattern designer is?

      Goodness, a lot of good work, but there are a number of those that are on another level. Very very exceptional.

          That is why I call this show my annual humbling.

            That's quite an impressive gallery of work.

            Just out of curiosity, what would you estimate the median age of the Long Island woodworkers to be? Reason I ask is that there was a discussion on another WW'ing forum about the decline of club memberships and participation in WW'ing as a hobby in general. It sounds like this group is very active and diverse. Of course they draw membership from one of the most densely populated areas of the country, but still, it's encouraging to see that level of participation and commitment.

                Rolf, you're the last person who needs "Humble Pie".

                You fit right in with a bunch of talented craftsmen. Thanks for sharing.

                  I was blown away at the depth and width of the various forms of craftsmanship shown--and I didn't look at every page closely.
                  A great bunch of folks there doing mighty fine work and as others have said, there is no way you should humbled at that show. We all look forward to see your test cuttings. (Half the time, I look at the name of cutter before I look at the designer when reading the magazine)

                    First I would like to thank you all for the kind comments.
                    Bill good question about our club. I think our current membership is about 200, I will try to get more accurate information. Yes we are in a heavily populated area but that does not mean that we have a lot of woodworkers willing or wanting to join a club.That is why we have our annual show to get the word out there.
                    But regarding the demographics of the club, I would estimate early to mid 60 average. We have a fair number of women an young folks in the 20-30 range.
                    I will ask our membership chair for better information. We get a lot of interest at our annual show. What hurts us is that we do not have a place where we can leave our tools setup. So demonstrations become a logistical challenge. The club management is trying to resolve that.

                      A discussion about wood thickness.
                      by Rolf
                      If a project in the magazine specifies say 1/2 inch or thinner woods, would you build it as designed? Or would you modify to suite the wood thickness that you may have on hand?
                      I am talking about projects where the thickness is more for aesthetics than functionality.

                      I look for proportion...

                      Glad to hear things are going in the right direction. The implantable devices are amazing these days. I have a spinal cord stimulator in my back and has been a help.

                      Nova drill press
                      by Rolf
                      Monday was a busy day, the Nova was delivered without a heads up notification. I managed to get all of the pieces into the basement. I still have to put the head on it.
                      I was interrupted by a visit to the ER for my pacemaker. So it will have to sit there for a bit until I get some strong friends...
