As I mentioned in the first article, I am finishing up a cabinet for a client in Long Island.
When it's finished, Eileen and I will pack up some things including the cabinet and head east for a week. First is a stop to see some friends in Mid-Lower New York State, then the delivery in Long Island where the client is a choir director and a pianist and his wife is a music teacher. So Eileen and I will really be wondering what we could possibly talk about when we make the delivery! After a day or so in NY we'll head down the coast for a couple more stops. First to visit Ellis Walentine who lives just outside of Philadelphia.
For the last ten years Ellis has maintained one of the Best woodworking sites on the web
Before starting WoodCentral, Ellis was editor of American Woodworker Magazine.
This is the publication on which I cut my woodworking teeth. Under his hand the magazine had outstanding articles and information. Each issue was "Magic in my Mailbox". Ellis has many years of experience as a designer and craftsman. His knowledge of design, woodworking techniques and processes as well as People and Events in the industry is unparalleled.
I am beyond excited to be stopping to visit his shop and operation.
After the visit to WoodCentral headquarters, we'll be heading off to Baltimore where we'll be staying with friends from college that I haven't seen in more than 25 years!
I was an exhibitor at the FFS in Milwaukee in 2006 and 2007.
Baltimore looks to be an interesting prospect. The venue alone looks spectacular!
