Just got home from the Southern States Symposium in Gainesville, Ga. The conference was superb, the organization by the cooperating AAW chapters was excellent. Got a chance to meet some new friends in AAW who were on hand. I was particularly taken by the demos by Al Stirt, Binh Pho, and Trent Bosch. Could not have learned more. Note to self: total up all the wood you bought, the tools you purchased, the pieces you bought and determine the REAL cost of the symposium. Priceless.
