Hello, my name is Vern. Just joined , I live in Elliston, Virginia and travel frequently in Nc. I am a sales rep for a bank subsiidiary specializing in manufactured home lending.
I am a confessed tool-aholic.I have been piddling with woodworking for about 20 years and find it to be my main source of relaxation. My projects recently have been for my grandchildren,(beds, bookcases,race tracks etc.)
My 9 year old grandson is my shop helper and has recently began to use the scroll saw. I think in very short order he will be better at it than I am.
Is anyone going to Klingspor"s show in Hickory which is today and tommorrow at the Hickory Metro Convention center. We went last year and throuhly enjoyed it.
looking foreward to getting to know the members on this board.
Thanks
Vern

Hello, and welcome to the board. Good to have another piddler to join the rest of us! :-D

Yes, several of us are going to the Hickory Extravaganza. There are a few threads about that in the "member announcement" forum. You're welcome to join us, of course! We'll all be meeting at Woodguys's chair raffle display, and we'll head out to his shop at about 1:00 pm on Saturday.

Welcome, it's good to have you here. Unfortunately, I won't be making it to the show this year but it is definitely worthwhile and you can pick up some very good deals there. Last time I wen I bought a Powermatic band saw, Jet spindle sander, Performax sander and lot's of other goodies. Prices were below anything else that I could find and I drove home with everything that day.

Cool, I look forward to meeting you. So has your grandson, never met anyone he did take a instant liking to, or never met anyone outside of the family. "Stranger" can be interpreted in many ways. Either way, I look forward to meeting the bunch of ya'll. The meeting place sounds to be John's (Woodguy1975) demonstration of chair sculpting at 10:00am. Hope to see you there. And check out the thread about his raffle. One of his chairs is going to someone, with the money going to help the victims of hurricane Katrina. A really awesome gesture. Dave:)
