Thread: Why we make the BIG MONEY

    Why we make the BIG MONEY

    Hi All,


    Title a little ostentatious?

    Sorry. It was meant to be.

    A simple, poor (not even close),ignorant redneck (absolutely),

    manages to not be that guy in the Frigidaire box, outside the office.

    Am I being boastful? Yep.

    But why Per? That is so unlike you.

    I know again, my apology's.

    Just needed to show how we in the proletariat struggle by.

    You, dear reader's know where I am coming from with this post.

    I promise I will never do it again.......

    But you should see what I drive......and its paid for.



    Pictures are second coat of Behlens Rock Hard Table top

    over 3 coats of MAS epoxy. 3 more coats of varnish to go,

    then the polishing regimen. Enjoy.

    Per

    Per,

    Your talent never ceases to impress me! You have the right to boast!!!

    Your self-control and restraint are equally impressive!

    Marty, Steve,

    Thanks, no really, for everything.

    But I am on a roll here.......

    So my interpretation of what

    a real mans bar is suppose to look like.

    Floor goes down in about a week.

    Then this redneck is changing hats,

    Packing the kids and the old geezer on Luftansa,

    to ski and snowboard in Zermatt. http://www.zermatt.ch/index.e.html

    I'd say that you earned it Per.
    I would love to tip a few in that masterpiece!

    Goodness Per, you and your dear old Dad have a lot to be proud of on that job

    I'm sure that for many many years to come, a lot of people will be stunned by the fine work that greets them when they walk into that bar, I know I'd be afraid of spilling my drink as I was gawking at the work you guys have done.

    Hats off, enjoy your trip, you have certainly earned it!

    i think if there was a place you could boast it would be here. we all understand the pride you feel when you finish any job, but something like this, you have rights to boast Per. thanks to you and your dad for sharing your beautiful work with all of us. it truly is inspiring!!

    hats off!!
