    I am sorry to report that not much of anything is coming out of my garage/shop. Am working on some projects around the farm, one of them is the conversion of the drive thru corn crib into a dedicated wood shop (one bench for reloading rifle and shotgun shells). So, except for the Breast Cancer pens, nothing has been used this summer. Hope to be in by end of September. Will be taking pictures and hope to start posting in a week.

    Well no wonder Larry was sending all that wood away. Just look at how inconsistent the color is. And that grain's not very straight at all, either. You did a great job to make something that nice out of the horrible wood Larry sent you, Steve.

    Larry:The thanks go out to you for allowing me to get some of that ugly wood.I woun't be posting any pics of the walnut as it just never would do right.Every time i thought i had it turned it would crack apart. Don't know if it was me or the wood but!!!
    By the way Zane said his dad was from Adriad MI.He was there before he came here.
