    Yeah, Yeah..Boo, Hiss

    We smoke, not too proud of it but it sure came in handy as I 'needed' a cigarette after opening my 'swap box' from Vaughn today

    Anyways we roll our own trying to save a cent or two, and I made this holder for the Mrs....3/32" sides, box jointed on the TS using a backer board... first attempt didn't go so well, got half way thru without a backing board and then...KAPOW...blew three teeth out somehow, quite the wake up call

    Walnut with an eagle ink stamped under blo...challenging I'll say, especially with eye's and nerves as old as me

    Looks great Ken. I can see how those itty bitty box joint fingers would definitely be a challenge.

    Ken, That looks great and the micro joint look to be challenging. Regarding the smoking, I used to smoke and quite, maybe too late since they are testing me for COPD. I used the patch to quite and found it to be fairly easy. For your own good think about doing it. BTW the patches cost less then the smokes.
