    Ken you are either going to have to learn to say no or start giving them a price.

    By the way Nancy said her Woodtek lathe enabled her to start turning bowls. Funny thing is haven't seen any bowls yet.

    I needed a replacement leg for one of our couches last weekend...I should have called you, Ken. :roolleyes:

    Since it was a back leg, out of sight, I stacked scrap lumber to make a block of wood about 4" x 6", and as high as the leg was long, and just screwed the block of wood to the bottom of the couch.
