      Well Mike, I have become a grandpa heck, my grandson is almost two already!! Woe time flies!) I lost a job of 21 years when the plant shut down, then did some farming, loooooong hours, before landing my new job. I am back to being a welder, working for a company that builds overhead cranes.Other than being a fairly long drive to and from work, I really enjoy the new job. Even though Betty likes to give BobD $#!^ for keeping me busy test cutting and not allowing me time to post on here, I have been doing some test cutting for Bob(I mailed two projects out to him yesterday as a matter of fact), and also I was working on a huge pile of projects for Heather in the Fox Chapel book dept that required a lot of time , first to troubleshoot exactly what the directions were (in a different language) and then to make. They all turned out great though, I look forward to seeing those books come out eventually. Besides that, my time with the 4H kids eats up all my free time for a good portion of the year, and then theres my own projects, and all the normal everyday things that need doing. No real tragedies or drama, just cant seem to find enough hours in a day!

              When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                          Geez Dale, I missed this post until after I posted in Betty's, but again welcome back. Congrats on the grandson, new job and all that. It's great to see a post from Barry as well, I've missed him too. Now a post from Evie would be really great, just like a family reunion.

                              Harass me? I'm barely here more than you and will use work, taking some college classes, and our adoption process as my excuses.......! I am glad all is well with you Dale, I was beginning to wonder if you pawned your saws.

                              It is good to stop in once in awhile and check in. I miss many of the folks here as well (Hi Marsha) and a "visit" by Evie would be grand.

                                What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

                                Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!

                                New tools can definitely open up the scope of what we can do, or how well I'm on the band wagon. Congrats!

                                At work (like 15 years ago) we got in some aluminum sheet on pallets 4'x12'. Those pallets were like brand new, without even any discoloring from the metals. I asked our sales rep, and he said I could keep one pallet. I removed all the 4' boards, which measured about 1/2" thick, 4" wide...

                                I agree that needs to be saved for a special project. The wood is likely oak based on the grain pattern and the discoloration around the nail.
