    The wood Fairy smiled on me

    As I mentioned in the its Friday post I got the 1800bf of Old growth Cypress stacked in the shop and also here is a picture of the shop looking to the front and the office area. Still have a lot of organizing and set up left to do but I am gaining on it a little everyday.

    This is all over 2"X6" (that's not dimension but full measure) almost 16' long

    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.

    Jay, you are now at hero status
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
