    Dang, Robert, that's alot of repetitive work. But I'm sure it will be appreciated.

    I like your designs, Robert. Looks like a lot of work, but spending time in the shop is probably preferable to hanging out in the house with the girls while the estrogen fest is going on.

    I agree, that is a nice design, good use of jigs too.

    Bob ... not really that big but the number needed seems to be quite fluid ... so I built extras ... and if like past projects, the extras will 'disappear' over time as the wife, daughter and sons use them as gifts throughout the year. Oh well ... doesn't take that much more time to make a few more ... and as Vaughn said, keeps me in the shop.

    Holy cow Robert, I thought I did some tedious projects!!! Amazing.

    You should take a picture of them all lined up when you're done for posterity.

    Very nice designs. Excellent production setup, jigs, wood selection. I'm sure there will be lots of ooohs and aaahs. Great work. Thanks for showing us.
