Bob Lang mentioned in last week’s recap of 360 WoodWorking that Glen and I took off for parts east and north last Monday morning. I thought it might be good to fill you in on what we did and why – as much as I’m willing to, that is.
The planned trip began some time back with three invitations. The first invitation was from the Atlantic Shore Woodturners to come and give a presentation on turning for furniture makers. Next, I was asked if I wanted to come to Salem, Mass. for a preview of the Nathaniel Gould exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum. But this was no ordinary preview; it was a press preview party to view the exhibit. And the third invitation came from the legendary Frank Klausz when he called to make sure I was alright after my departure from the magazine – the conversation with Frank went something like this, “When you are in the area, you should stop by. We’ll do something in the shop and you can stay here.” Honestly, if these invitations were extended to you, would you turn them down? Yeah, neither could I.
