Fine Woodworking magazine will participate in this years judging. other judges and speakers include Ernie Conover and Michael Puryea. In addition to The LIWC there will be two Turning Clubs, two Carving Clubs and a Scrollsaw Club exhibiting. The Long Island Scrollsaw Association will be hosting a scroll saw "picnic". A plane shaving contest is scheduled with prized awarded to the thinnest continuous shaving. Prizes will include items donated by Lie-Nielsen and others. All seminars are included free with price of admission. Parking is free. Other activities planned are a toy workshop, a tool garage sale (very popular, come early), a woodshop gallery and cash raffles and free door prizes.

          Sawdustjoe,
          How about moving it closer to California - it sounds like a lot of fun! (and work)

            Well, we got one in Portland Or, the end of July. That is a little closer. For more info check the Wooden Teddy Bear site.

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                I'm hoping to be able to make it on Sunday (Saturday's out as I have a fair). do you happen to know what the admission is? The website doesn't have that info. It would likely be a family outing so I want to make sure I have enough cash on hand.
                Thanks,

                  Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                  I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                  Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...

                  Bruce said he felt like he needed to look for a job when he first retired. That lasted for about a month and he hasn’t looked back since. I had a friend whose company gave him a 50th party. At the party he told them he was retiring in 2 weeks! Trust us, you will love being retired.

                  Hi ibber - LOL!

                  I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.
