Default Not new but it has been a while

Hi everyone, I just thought I would stop by and see what is going on. Wow, IAP has grown since I was here last. That is great, I love to see this great community of great people.
I actually stopped woodworking and logging for a while and now I am back. This is why I thought I would stop by and say hi and reintroduce myself.
I am Chris Allen I live on the Big Island of Hawaii, yes the one with all the volcano action. Boy there is a lot of lava. I am not in danger, I live far enough away. I can still see the red glow at night and I can hear the volcano sometimes, a lot of booms and jet engine sounds and explosions.
Anyway, I had a logging business for many many years. I do not do much logging anymore but I still have plenty of wood and I still have my website There are only pictures there but they are fun to look at.
I will be around here more often and I will even talk to Jeff to see about donating some pen blanks again. Aloha nui loa.

Glad you made it back! I bought some Koa from you a few times and wondered if you were still messing with wood, as I hadn't seen you post in quite some time.

That volcano look's intense.

Welcome Chris, from Sydney, Australia.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
