    My YYZ for the Swap - Delivered

    Material selection, one of my favorite parts of any project. There will be at least two woods in this. I don't want anything too wild.

    I've got some birds-eye maple, always a nice touch.

    I'll have to do my usual stand, stare and percolate for awhile . . . it'll hit me in a bit.

    Oh I'm not using all that material . Those are just some potential pieces of material I may take parts from. I figure if it won't fit in a medium sized flat rate box I've lost focus and wandered too far from the spirit of the swap .

    Hey there are no size rules, you can make it as big as you want Glenn, after all you'll pay for the shipping
    Best regards,
