So last weekend I popped up to St. Louis (actually Collinsville, IL) for my first woodworking show. It was pretty neat! Lots of vendors there with tools old and new, demonstrations and seminars, and even some people selling wood. I picked up some wood and a few old secondhand gouges and went to one seminar on design and stock prep. I was so busy looking at stuff that I only remembered to take pictures when we were about to leave.
This week I’m continuing to work on stuff for the Ren Faire, focusing on tables for now. Worked out a prototype for a tavern table yesterday, and if I can settle on a good design for the legs I’ll make one with a round top and one with a square top. More on that later.
