    and a 1944 martin d 28 get fiddle that was hardly worth the effort to drag out(NOT)don't remember the price--it was shocking--specially after all the downgrades the guy gave it

    It'll run again. Also there are 2 more episodes from RC. Pretty sure my old coffee buddy Fred is going to be on. They filmed him anyway, with a real old survey instrument.
    I read about Molesworth many years ago when I was first getting my log furniture business going. I used to find those burls but thought they were ugly, still do. I used the big ones to slice up for table tops, still have a couple slabs I brought from Alaska. I left 400-500 signed pieces around the Mat-Su valley and Anchorage. Maybe I'll be famous someday when I'm dead.
    Too bad that Molesworth didn't have the original oxblood leather.

    i agree about the burls--to me the beauty is within


    what did Fred have to show??

    the roadshow is one of my all time fav tv shows--lots of knowledge passed along and lots of truly wonderful stuff to see

    that's too bad--the brand books were interesting, i'll bet u have run into the guy as he said they all came from auctions, mostly boxes in lots---there were some other interesting items--a very good showing of history from the world that has found itself in the black hills or near by

    on another note, looks like them females eat pretty good up that way i was thinking kc mo--julie said san antone
