Talking AWFS. A gloat of the first order!

As some of you might know, LOML and I will be in Las Vegas for the AWFS show in the Woodworker's Supply booth (#10168). I've held off on posting this until now because it was still up in the air until a few days ago, BUT....

I have been tapped to do the demonstration of the midi-lathe at the show!! I'll be in the booth, turning pens and maybe even a small cherry bowl and possibly one other item (I'm taking a piece of maple with me too).

I've been turning only since late last summer, but apparently someone decided that my skills are sufficient that I can demonstrate. I'm honored, but I'm also terrified, because there will be attendees from all over the world and I'll be standing there shaking in my boots while wielding a turning tool. Wish me luck!!!!

Good luck...and wear a turtle neck. You don't want to distract them all from the demo by digging lathe chips out of you know where .

I see you changed your avatar after I posted, you have the full turning getup. I reckon you have had your shirt pockets filled up enough times you didn't need my first piece of advice .
I remember years ago I learned a lesson about turning shavings, shirt pockets and washing machines. Make sure to get all the walnut out of my pockets before I put my shirt in the washer with my wifes clothes. She did not like the polka dot die job I did on her stuff .

Yep, Daren, I changed my avatar last night. I figured that if I'm going to be known as a turner, I might as well look like one. When I'm home, I take the air hose to myself before I leave the shop--usually gets rid of all the dust and shavings that might get into the house.
