  • Blonde in the Everglades

    A young blonde was on vacation and driving through the Everglades.
    She wanted to take home a pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking.
    After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle on prices" attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the blonde shouted, "Well then, maybe I'll just go out and catch my own alligator, so I can get a pair of shoes for free!"

    The shopkeeper said with a sly, knowing smile, "Little lady,just go and give it a try!"

    The blonde headed out toward the swamps, determined to catch an
    alligator. Later in the day, as the shopkeeper is driving home, he
    pulls over to the side of the levee where he spots that same young
    woman standing waist deep in the murky water, shotgun in hand.
    Just then, he spots a huge 9-foot gator swimming rapidly toward
    her. With lightning speed, she takes aim, kills the creature and
    hauls it onto the slimy bank of the swamp.
    Lying nearby were 7 more of the dead creatures, all lying on
    their backs. The shopkeeper stood on the bank, watching in silent
    The blonde struggled and flipped the gator onto its
    back. Rolling her eyes heaven-ward and screaming in great
    frustration, she shouts out, "S**T...THIS ONE'S BAREFOOT TOO!"

    Good one Chuck

      He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

      Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

      I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
