“The Force” Behind the Jointmaker Pro!

This weekend Michael and I attended Maker Faire in Portland. What a blast that thing is. I am going to the big Kahuna next year in San Francisco, it is that cool. I think it should be a DSN field trip of epic proportions. And I can tell you this, this was way more fun than any woodworking show I have ever attended. Virtually every single booth had something in it that was of interest to me. Way cool.



We had visitors and I captured the moment forever;

The poor sap across from us said something unsavory to the Federation. Goodbye Mr. Smarty Pants…

After that dude was vaporized, I caught this image of confidence…

This is the best “Thumbs Up” for the JMP we have ever received.

This guy is not really into eye contact…

Seriously, we will organize a DSN field trip next Spring to SF! I have never seen so many people having so much fun.

  1. Where’s the squiggle wood project?

    I’m looking for THAT force of gravity on steel balls!

  2. Wouldn’t a light saber be a power tool? Granted a portable power tool, but a power tool none the less.

  3. I’m still waiting for the CT-36 laser guided walker with GPS and drink holder.

  4. I’d be down for hosting a Par Tay at the studio if the SF thing happens.
    I volunteered at the SF Maker Faire a few years ago. Twas a blast.

  5. John,
    I didn’t realize that having your customers dress up as Star Wars characters is all it takes for a successful show. Next show, I’ll dress up as Princess Leia; don’t have much hair on top, although I should be able to grow the sides out enough to put them up in to a “cinnamon bun” shape. You’re welcome.
