As many of you know, Jamie Bacon, the writer of the Plane Shavings blog, died Tuesday after a long battle with cancer. I enjoyed Jamie's blog very much and he was very kind in his comments on mine. He really loved woodworking and did wonderful work. Just a few weeks ago, he had gracefully written about transitioning to spoon carving because it was something he could do physically. Take a few minutes to look back over his blog, see the workshop he built, the skill he had and the enthusiasm he brought to woodworking. I only knew him through his blog, but I know he was a fine man. Like many of you, I am very conscious that we are a community and I will miss him. The world was a better place because he was in it.
