Default Rocklers founder Norton "Nordy" Rockler passes away age 98

Man made quite an impact on woodworking both pro and hobby alike, mad props to him and his legacy.

I saw that on Instagram this morning...actually in a post from Woodcraft. Sad, but he thankfully had a long life!

I got a Rockler store down the way from me and it's like a candy shop every time I go in.

Not the place an impulse buyer like me should go to too often, I try to have something specific in mind when I go, but you can hardly help coming out with things unplanned, especially their wood selection which varies from great to poor.
