    Wood Score

    I thought I had posted these pics last week...anyway, I picked up some basswood chuncks (pic 1) and some BIG chunks of maple last week. (pics 2-4) Still not sure how I managed it, but my arms back are still sore from loading the maple into the back of the foci wagon. The crotch piece will become a couple coffee tables, or that's the plan anyway.

    BTW....Can you install a liftgate to a hatchback??

    The front wheels were still on the ground, but the back was riding pretty low!

    Ok, what he really needs is a utility trailer from HF... The teardrop crowd build on them & most of them use cars to pull their campers, your focus should pull one with ease.
