    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Very nice, I love the wood.
    There are no mistakes in woodworking until you run out of wood.

    Nice work, Les. I'd never heard of that wood. Very interesting-looking wood. According to Mr. Google, it looks like some type of Siberian crab apple?

    Some web surfing is needed

    I think Les may have misspelled Caragana which is a shrub often used as a hedge. Correct me if I'm wrong, Les.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    I thought it was cowhide at first glance I suspect it's this.

    Certainly is unusual and looks good.
