Just a few thoughts this morning. A few days ago I was in the UK pondering a question. How can I, getting ready to go to Vegas in three days time, with a half dozen important things yet to do, I needed a workbench 5,000 miles away in Las Vegas for me to demonstrate. I called Woodcraft, Rockler and few others and no one could help so I went on line and found Woodworkers Emporium. I made a phone call and talked to the owner, Christian Brisepierre, a man who knew nothing about me and whom I have never met or talked to before. Almost without question, I explained my predicament and he said, “I have two, you can use one.”
Next thing is I am in Las Vegas unloading a workbench from the back of his truck, together with some clear, clean knot free boards for demonstrating with.
I thought about Christian; how without knowing me he simply wanted to help. That’s how it is and always has been with woodworkers universally. A willingness to share tools and equipment, knowledge and skill and much more. So far the bench has worked out fine. I am certain that anyone visiting the Woodworkers Emporium will get the same treatment and more. Thank you Christian, for all your help.
