    Re: Klingspor - Cary Grand Opening wrap-up

    My wife and I attended the Grand Opening at Klingspor today as customers, not as NCWW members. A great turnout from club participants and an impressive gathering of the RDU woodworking community. Demos were terrific; we watched Michael's turning session for a long time. Would love to see a pic of the finished cedar bowl. Also wanted to ask questions about the segmented bowls but booth was so busy we never got the chance. Outside looking in, an awesome job from NCWW. Glad I was able to attend and observe.

    Made it by the store around 10:30 and was an impressive crowd. Unfortunately they were sold out of the promo Kreg kit I was looking for.

    Re: Klingspor - Cary Grand Opening wrap-up

    Tom.m : Well, I managed to knock the Cedar bowl out of the lathe! Must have been after you left the room. I did put it back on the lathe but had to cut about 1/4 of the length off due to cracks. When I was working on hollowing, the deeper I got, the darker it got in the bowl. Needless to say, I couldn't finish it due to the lack of spot lighting in the bowl. I'll finish it up here at home and post some pics. It was a fun day, but overall, not very productive for me on the lathe.

    the young lady in the Klingspor hat was Sophie. She waited around to see me polish one of the pen blanks.

    Had a great time. Thanks all for letting me participate.

    She and I had a great time! Looks like a small lathe is in her immediate future.

    She said she had $700. I offered her the pen blank and the lathe for $500. Wisely, she declined. LOL!

    Maybe the best part of the day was when Pat and I were walking through the parking lot to leave and she and her dad were driving out. Dad rolled down the window so she could wave to us.

    Micheal:
    That was a large chunk of cedar you were working on! We enjoyed watching how you utilized various tools, how you used the reverse function on the lathe, how you sanded, etc. For turners and non-turners alike, I thought it was an interesting and educational demonstration. And the aromatic cedar made the work room smell great. Good job and thanks for doing the demo.

    Re: Klingspor - Cary Grand Opening wrap-up

    Thanks Tom! Maybe I came off wrong in my original comments. I had a great day! I may not have finished anything, but I enjoy chatting with people and telling them what I'm doing and why. It was a great day!

    Re: Klingspor - Cary Grand Opening wrap-up

    Great time and great food. Met a lot of really nice people that had a ton of questions about carving. Surprising the number of women that were interested. A lot of them had taken or were going to take lessons so they had questions about types of tools to purchase and what kind of sharpening tools were they going to need.

    I am sure that Klinspor was happy with the number of people that showed up for the Grand Opening as it was a great turn out.

    Re: Klingspor - Cary Grand Opening wrap-up

    It was another wonderful outing. My hat is off to Coleman and Paul who hosted. To Phil for herding cats to get us all there. To all who attended as workers or visitors. It was great day which I topped off by going to Carter Finley and watching the Pack win. Go PACK and NCWW!!!!
