Well it has been a while and can't tell you why I've stayed away for so long. It is like everything woodworking came to a screeching halt for a few months. I thank everybody that sent PM's (I did look at those once in a while) but just didn't have it inside to participate. I have gotten back out into the shop over the last couple of months and have been working on the library. I will get around to posting some photos a little later.
I did pick up a new hobby while I've been away. Baking and cooking (just like I need more food!) Friends here got me into a cooking club and found that I really like cooking especially baking bread! I've also made a mean lasagna from scratch and won "best dish" (Red Beans and Rice made with home pickled pork) at one of the club dinners. There was 45 people at that one and felt very honored to have done so well.
It is going to take some time to read through all the posts that I've missed out on and slowly get back into the swing of the best WW site with the best bunch of people on the web.
