Jeff,
You won't be disappointed!  I had the pleasure of working on some of John's collection over the years, He was a really great guy an absolute wealth of knowledge on antique furniture, and his collection was/is extrordinary.

Hey Ken!

Good to hear from you.  We haven't been in touch for about 6 years (you sold me some nice mahogany for one of my student's lowboy project).  I'm saddened that I never new John and he was only an hour and a half away.  I would have loved to sit and talk clocks with the man.  May even have had a tape measure and camera in my pocket!!
