        Just when you think you have seen most of everything a guy like this appears to astound you! Where do these guys find their imagination, skill and incredible patience to come up with works of art such as these? Amazing work!

        Thanks for link Mike and also for allowing me to give my wife a good reason for not throwing away all the wood chips that usually bury my shop back home until I get nagged enough to have a clean up !

          Fantastic!!!!!!! My wife's comment, a very quiet "Don't get any ideas."

          A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

            I bag mine up and put them on the neighbors fence. He uses all my scraps for his nightly camp fire. He puts bags of oranges, in season, on my fence so I need to reciprocate.

                      Hi Tony - I built a wedgie sledge pretty much immediately after you first mentioned it. It worked fine within the capabilities of my homebuilt table saw but I quickly realized that to get the best out of it I needed a new saw, hence my recent acquisition.

                      Hi planeur - thanks for the reply.

                      Just to be clear. I wasn't suggesting that you change your original sheriff, rather that you apply some of the ideas for future projects. Nevertheless you can see the difference in the modified version

                      Still no news as to when elderly folk will get their shots here in Mexico. I tuned in to the Monday morning government bulletin this morning only to find out that the Health Secretary who normally gives these bulletins was absent. He was admitted...

                      Glad to hear it, Rolf. It shouldn’t be so harrowing just trying to do the right thing, but good that you didn’t give up.
