    Not woodworking but it still made me money

    I had a call from a lady who said she had a piece that had a small piece missing and asked me if I'd take a look at it to see if I could fix it. It was a small ceramic hourse. The left ear was missing. When I saw it I told her that it would cost more then the piece was worth and she could proubly buy 2 horse for what I would have to charge her. She asked me to fix it anyhow.

    It came out pretty good. It's marvolose what you can do with a little bond and some acrylic paint.

    Gee Don, next time do focus the pics, it has been hard for me to tell wether it was an ear or a horn.

    Jokes apart, those comissions are the most profitable ones. I'm glad for you
    Best regards,
    Toni
