    Charlie's Shop Tour, Feb 2nd

    On Feb 2nd several NCWW members from the coastal area are coming to my shop for a get together and tour.
    We will also visit the shop of a friend who does magnificent carvings.
    We plan to have lunch at the Macgregor Draft House in Cary, which is located next door to the Klingspor Woodworking Shop.
    I would like to invite anyone and everyone that would be interested in attending this gathering. Whether you are local or farther away, it just depends on how far you wish to drive.
    It will be a great opportunity to meet some of the east coast members and/or see old friends.
    If you are interested please respond to this post and I will PM you my address, details, etc.
    The shop will be open from 8:00 AM, but I expect the coastal folks to arrive around 9-10. It is a 2 hour drive for them.

    Thank you,

    Charlie

    I can vouch for Charlie being a great host and having a nice shop. His equipment modifications and jigs he uses are a must to check out. This will be well worth the drive

    I too would be glad to vouch for his hospitality and ingenuity, and would even visit a third time if the drive was not twenty something hours. Visiting while the AAW symposium is in town is a must!

    Re: Charlie's Shop Tour, Feb 2nd

    Charlie, I have been to your shop on many occasions, but it is always a pleasure. If it is okay, I would like to attend and meet some locals and non-locals....I will watch and listen...and learn! (Since I live so close, if you need any assistance preparing, please ask; I would be more than happy to help.)

    I will be coming and bringing another NCWW member with me. I have room for one or two more from the New Bern area if you are interested but not sure about the drive. I was at Charlie's the day of the annual picnic and familiar with the drive.

    Re: Charlie's Shop Tour, Feb 2nd

    Also a note for the New Bern Lunch Bunch crowd, this event is our January meeting. Charlie has come out to New Bern several times in the past so this is our chance to see his shop. This was originally scheduled to be the Saturday after Hurricane Florence hit. I think we're ready now. Just hoping a blizzard or winter storm doesn't hit.

    Really would be a shame for you guys to get stuck at Charlie's. Have to flip coins to see gets to do what while you wait it out.
