I purchased my ticket for the Studley Tool Chest Exhibit about 1 year ago.   I just knew this was something that was important as a woodworker.

+Raymond DeRaymond So I did some Google research.  I know also know that drawbore pegs are the wood things we put in the holes and drawbore pins are the metal shafts with handles that are sold to temporarily tighten drawbore joints during the build process.

As part of Handworks 2015, the Amana Furniture Shop offered a tour of their production woodworking shop.   The tour was limited to 25 people for each tour.  I was fortunate to get a 3pm Saturday tour.

There is so much that could be said about Handworks 2015. I attended.  I saw old friends, and made new friends.  Found people who knew me from Instagram and this blog.  So many excellent tool makers,  craftsmen and teachers.

+xue roger I purchased lumber more than 2 years ago at Atlanta Hardwoods.   It is 8/4 "soft" maple.  About 250 bf.  I think if you plan very well, you can make it with 200 bf.

KInd of an odd review. I had purchased and was picking a glass product from their business neighbor. The noted on the door told me that Ben-Son glass had a family emergency and the "ladies at LineX" would help me. So LineX took the time to help their business neighbor and help me. If I ever need Glass Tinting or the other services LineX Alpharetta provides I will give my business to these people. This business has NOT forgotten that service is the product. Thanks to the "ladies at LineX" for providing service to a non-customer. NICE !

I called about a piece of tempered glass. John at the Alpharetta location answered all my questions and took my order. He was careful to make sure I understood that once the glass is cut and tempered it cannot be cut again. When I placed the order John told me when it would be ready. I got a call from John a day before advising me there was a delay and we agreed I could pick up in a few days. Yesterday, I went to their location ( without calling ). I found a note on the door. They were closed due to a family emergency. BUT.... Please check two doors down and the "ladies at LineX" had keys and would take care of the charges. WOW... What EXCELLENT service. I would recommend anyone needing glass of any kind call John. I pray their family emergency was resolved.

You really have to be willing to look. You CAN save money if your are building but you must know what you are doing. I do not think this is for casual amatuers

I have had my hearing aids for nearly 2 years. My initial experience with Dr. Wynens was excellent. She was very informative and made sure that I understood my hearing problems. I made a decision to get hearing aids she carefully explained my options and the technology behind the devices. I ended up with excellent hearing aids including a bluetooth device that allowed me to use them as my "headset" at my work place and also with cell phones. Just recently I had a mechanical problem with my hearing aids. After putting off taking care of the problem, I contacted Dr. Wynens by email. She immediately responded and determined exactly the problem. She order the parts. In less than a week, she eMailed me the replacement part had arrived and she made sure I was able to see her the same day. Problem is fixed. Excellent knowledge and communication.
