Turning Archive 2004
Dave Smith, Longview, WA
I met a man today who had recently moved to Vancouver, WA from Hendersonville, NC. We were talking turning and he told me about how big his old turning club was. I asked him if he knew David Propst and he said yes. Small world, eh. I suppose he could have been pulling my leg. His name is Henry Chouch. I couldn't believe he didn't know Andy Halterman since he was from Hendersonville. Meeting Henry was a nice treat during the carving show toady. I got lots of verbal praise but not much monetary compensation. But I was reminded of all the great friend I have met on Badger Pond and Wood Central. It wasn't cash but it was almost as good as money.
If I could bank compliments I would be a rich man in Longview, WA.
