It was likely his mom did the shaving. Too traumatic for Dave.

A demo Idea I think would be good is heat bending.  It seems to always be something that I help with quite a bit.  Im sure we can find a stave laying around that could use some bending.

Pat I know of five bows I heated and bent last year. I am totally down for a demo.

Sounds good Jon,  I just know I hate trying to help a new person with giant clamp compression scars on their stave, and stress fractures from bending wood that wasn't hot all the way through.  I think it would be good to teach as a team.  Maybe not on a schedule but when ever there is bending thats needed we can gather all who would be interested.

I don't want to read something into what you said Pat. If you don't think I am capable of doing the demo that's cool. If that's not what you meant then I apologize.

Patrick - that's a wonderful weather forecast you posted. "from your lips (or in this case, a weather forecaster) to God's ears".


Like others, I can only recall a couple of MoJAMs that were like that forecast shows. There was one that was brisk enough overnight that folks were sleeping under blankets and sleeping bags. Long sleeves everywhere that a.m. well, long sleeves for those who had the foresight to bring one along. That was the year I headed to Wally World and bought a denim jacket off the sale rack for 10 bucks. Still use it and bring it hoping to wear it again, hmm, maybe I should leave it home this year.

I knowni have at least of picture of john murray in a flannel jacket one night.

I can always tell a bow that john heated by the clamp marks and smell of burning belt sander.   ;D

Clint i wont ha e time for a demo, ill be to busy trying to find a pencil. Maybe you could just follow me around and carry a pencil for me? Id ask mike to do it, but we all know he would lose it somewhere.

No Jon I didn't mean it that way at all.  I reread what I wrote and I understand what your saying.  I think your way more than capable. And as a team I ment all of us,  but it was just a thought.  No need to apologize bud,  we are all adult here.  I'm sorry it came accross that way.

Could be one of those sneaky concealed carry things - bring your card, pencils are dangerous weapons!  Mightier than a sword >:D!  On the other hand, it might be an open carry with a beard clip!
As a newbie, I'd like to see as many demos as practical, but some sort of schedule will help!  Team teaching and hands on are the best methods of teaching/learning.

Hee hee. Reminds me of when school was out for summer. My dad would always clip our heads on the lowest setting the clipper had. Lots of tears and hair clippings.lol

The more I think of it Dave the more I think a nose piercing would really give you that primal look. And I'm guessing after your mom saw it she wouldn't think the beard was all that bad.lol.
