Come one, come all! Surely you have a scrap 2x4 - 12" long laying around you can sacrifice. Quit all the whining, I don't have time! Face facts, we are woodworkers and hate comparing our work but when all is over and done with the majority of the responses come from non participants saying, "this looks like fun, will have to get involved next time". WELL THIS IS NEXT TIME FOLKS!!!! Come on, make something silly, make something useful, make something nonsensical, make something gorgeous, make SOMETHING! Failure is an option for those that don't join in. Come on, good clean, cheap fun, what is the worst that could happen, you could mess up a 12" hunk of 2x4?????
