I can't wait to dig in. So bummed not to make it today! Trish was in a ceramics workshop all day, and I was watching both of our little ones.

Great meeting you guys. I see that my surface pro, walk around camera skills are lacking, ha! Looking forward to the next one and will be more prepared hopefully. I learned a few things for sure as always.

Brad--

The recording link is not showing. I checked on both an iPad and a Windows laptop. Could you put another link in a post, like last time? Thanks!

Lots of interesting ideas. Thanks to everyone for sharing and Brad for hosting.
I need to apologize for logging in to the roundtable and not muting my mic while I was still watching the KSU TCU football game.
Ya might say I was little excited about both.

lets see if this link works.

Brad, A big thank you for putting these together. It's really good to put a face (and a shop) to so many of you.
I especially want to thank you for archiving these for those of us without the tech chops to attend.

Thanks very much for coordinating these Brad!

As usual I got some great new ideas from it.

Thanks to Andy Birko for the CA & Masking tape demo. Like others commented in the video, I thought I understood the concept but I had totally missed out on the burnishing step!

Great jigs and great shops!

Just watched this , so many thanks to Brad and everyone who contributed. All very interesting and a few things learned, but it was especially reassuring to know that I'm not the only one who drops things on the floor and prefers them to stay there. I also invested in one of those grabber stick gizmos. My stool is an important part of my shop now.
Thanks again guys , I'm looking forward to the next one.
