Meeting a couple of fellow guildies

Wood working as a hobby is usually a hobby spent for the most part in solitary. Well, this past Saturday I had the pleasure of being invited over to Ian's (AKAWoodcanuck) shop and meeting Ian and his friend Adam. Adam and Ian are also members of The Wood Whisperer Guild.

Adam and Ian
There was much oo-ing and ah-ing over items that Ian brought back from Woodworking in America and discussion around ongoing/past projects, shop setup and WIA in general. I had a wonderful time poking around Ian's shop and just generally talking about woodworking. Yes, that in itself counts as woodworking because stuff related to woodworking was learned :-).

Got some ideas on shop organization, but also realize that Ian's shop evolved to this state over time. It's not something that happens overnight.

Thanks again for the invite Ian!

Author's note 10-19-2010: Ian has his own blog as well. Be sure to give him a visit at WoodCanuck's Blog.

  1. Mike,
    Sounds like a time well spent. I had the pleasure of meeting Ian at WIA and I've also been lucky enough to have Kari give me a tour of the Village Carpenter's shop. I'd say take up any chance you have to see a shop and share yours too.
