    85% of my work is turning at least time spent. That is why it was posted here.

    Feel free to erase/delete or ignore my miss step! No matter how much I seek perfection it never happens. Always someone feels or will see my miss step.

    Trying to PERK up the number of post to the turning area. as per Stu instruction.

    Another way we can perk up the number of posts is to encourage the peeps who lurk but don't post there are lots and lots of folks who have been member since almost the begining and have posted very little if at all.

    Paul, a shop is only messy if you can't find what you need. As long as you know where everything is.....no problem. Good looking wood too! Honey Locust?? HMMM.....

    Tom,

    The MG is in its 17 year of a frame up - restore. Stripped down to frame sandblasted everything. new wood then realized that I was not a body shop man. It stalled and and stalled and stalled.

    When purchased I told my wife Melissa that it would be finished in 3 years.

    so 17 years later -- all the parts are there need to do body work and try to remember how it all goes back... I have many shop/restore book and moss motors helps -- But kind of lost interest.. I am getting old don't expect to have another 17 years to wait..

    Paul that's not a messy shop. That is a working shop.
