    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Jonathon, If I had that and a sawmill, I would be in business, or at least a very happy man.

    I've never seen something like this before....maybe your class can make one for a class project?

    Seems to me something like that could be built for a lot less than $30,000.00.
