Despite still limping around with sciatica I had a great time talking to folks and seeing some of my regular visitors again. I'm glad I persevered and pushed myself to go despite my aches and pains. I could not have done it with a the help of my wife and a couple of enthusiastic volunteer helpers. Often a few bodies are needed to fend off the hands of groups of little visitors! A big thank you to Jocelyn and Caitlyn for help. Many of the carvers around us were trying to encourage them to take up tools and join the carving community! And of course extra kudos to my wife PJ for her continued energy and assistance. (I think many folks my be coming back to see her, not me!) Here's a photo of the team in action!
To anyone who picked up a card off the table and have found him themselves reading this blog, thanks for stopping by it was a pleasure to see you. I hope you will become a regular visitor to my site. I will be back in the shop and blogging more regularly now. Feel free to comment on a blog or send me a note through the "Contact Us" webpage, I am always interested in new ideas and enrolling others in this quirky art form.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
