Ustream Broadcast, May 11, 2010

My voice sounds a little froggy on this one, as I'm coming down with something due to the crazy temperature swings in Virginia. I cover a few different topics including a brief into to the Edison Pen Co. nibs that I'll be using in my fountain pens, some less-than-favorable things I've heard about J. Herbin King's Wax, my personal views on woodworking craftsmanship and the challenges a fine woodworker faces today, my anticipated attendance in the 2010 DC fountain pen show, and a variety of ink brands I'm looking to offer.

I'm also planning to move the time of my Ustream show to Monday nights at 9pm (EST). **It's since changed to Write Time at 9, every Tuesday night at 9pm EST This will be more convenient for just about everyone and the time should be accommodating for both East and West coast (and those in between!).

  2. I was in 3 woodturning groups at my local Woodcraft....I was the youngest by about 40 years or so! It's not exactly a young-man's craft anymore, which is a shame because it's so rewarding!

  3. I think a lot of it has to do with time. Since I don't have any kids, I would go crazy if I did not have some type of fulfilling hobby.

    I keep wondering how we can spread the word to the younger generation...
