    Thanks again Larry.

    Used satin wipe on Minwax poly on the totes this time. Oh and learnt a lesson about buying tins of poly that i want to pass out here. The tins with the metal screw on caps man they terrible. New minwax lid is clip on clip off seal with plastic way better. My old stuff dried up.

    Toni if you get to see this i can understand why you like carving. I used a little carving logic on the second tote and o la la it was great to shape the top back end of the tote. Still used the rasps though.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    That's some great looking chocolate Rob. Well done. I may have to get my couple of planes out once dust settles this winter for some updates "Keeble" style.
