    Default 7th Annual North Central Texas Razor Meet at Charlie Lewis Straight Razor Workshop

    Hello all !

    It is once again time for all aspiring straight razor makers to join us for 5 days
    of razor forging and grinding heaven.

    The dates this year are Feb 20-21-22-23-24 inclusive

    Most of us stayed at the Twilite Inn at a cost of approx $50 nite for double occupancy.
    A very good deal on a clean, basic room close to the workshop.

    The place ... Burkburnett, Texas. For the address just post in this thread and it will be sent to you.
    Burkburnett is 120 miles due south of Oklahoma City, OK and just over the state line in Texas.
    It is also about 2 hours north of Dallas.

    I hope to see all the usual suspects once again, Tcrideshd, Paco, Bill Watkins, rolodave, 32T, Scott Goodman, Bluesman7, bob allman, thehattr, and all the others! This year a friend of mine from Phoenix, Damon , will be attending and maybe 2 of his friends from OKC and our host Charlie Lewis will be there plus a few of Charlies friends ( I hope Andy makes it again).

    We will be doing a few things differently this year.
    1. Due to the difficulty and expense of getting 15-20 guys to a restaurant for lunch and dinner we will experiment with preparing lunch and dinner at the workshop. This will save all of us some money and time. To pay for this we will be asking for donations to cover the costs of the food.
    We are estimating about $5 for lunch and $10 for dinner each day. We will ask for volunteers to help prepare each meal.
    There will be one evening when we will go to a very good steakhouse in Wichita Falls. This has become a tradition and we wish to continue it.

    For breakfast we usually all meet at the Star Diner just across the street from McDonalds.
    Good basic food at a good price.

    2. Operating expenses.
    The cost of propane for the forges and BBQ grills, grinding belts, repairs to the forge, electricity, steel etc need to be passed on to the users of such items. If you actively make use of the above we ask that you make a donation of $10 per day for such. If however you do not do so on a day then your cost will be zero. Once again, this is a expense that has been paid for by a few people in the past but all of you will understand that it has become to much for just a few people to subsidize.

    Any questions ?

    Hope to see you all there!

    I was thinking about your rolls of quarters.

    I have wanted to make Mokume Gane.
