    My xyz for the swap

    I have a couple ideas going thru the thought process. I started on two of them to see just what takes shape.

    More to come for sure, I hope. Only 112 days to (USA) Thanksgiving on 26th Nov, 2015. Looking forward to seeing everyone elses progress.

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    If I was a betting man I'd be laying some odds on a bit of spalting taking place. I'm not a betting man so I'll just say it's statistically likely

    It is obvious ... some of you, maybe all of you, are smarter than me. Yep, trying some spalting and hoping it will be done in time. We will see in a month or so. If not, I'll go with plan B.

    some additional progress on plan B. Plan A is still in the WIP stage and coming along more slowly.

    Obviously I have mixed up my Plan A and B. So, here is some progress on the 'other' possibility:

    WOW, so many swap projects completed and even delivered already and many more in the works. I have been lax in posting but more progress has been made. Actually Plan A (or was it B?) was completed but my daughter-in-law/son announced I will be a Grandpa in Feb., 2016, so it is gone as a gift. Not to worry, I knew I would have to make more than one so the extra parts are in the shop and coming together. More hints:

    Absolutely! The notches in the ring are .. intriguing.

    Not sure on the other project, some sort of holder or stand.. but not sure for what. Seems relatively tall in comparison to the holes that the ?thing? it holds in it..
