    At first it's a little cloudy, but watch the entire show. It's something to consider as a hobby.

    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.

    Enjoyable 4 mins. Those guys sue get a birds eye view of the terrain. I saw the same thing several months ago only in Sweden I think may have been Switzerland. Not my thing for sure. Not with my fear of falling....LOL

      Nice video Chuck. I don't like flying without the airplane, Ha. I need some good sound footing under me. I really get spooked looking down, even from a firescape. They sure have a beautiful view as they sail down. Thanks for showing us.

          While watching this I thought, my silverware says "Made in China", why do the people there use sticks to eat?
          As far as the video, I don't mind falling...it's that sudden stop at the end that I don't like!

                This has got to be one of the most exhilarating things you can do in life but the folks who do this have got to be at least 2 bricks short of a wall. I have trouble enough just walking down steep stairs to even think about what these guys get up to first jumping off into oblivion and then weaving in and out at tremendous speeds through those cliff faces and pinnacles. Amazing!

                    Amazing.

                    Also a rush would be just the gondola ride. I have a little roadster, those roads made me drool.

                      There was a time when I was willing to try jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. That time is now long past. Those guys must have drank a lot of Redbull and gotten hyped up before doing this, I know I would have to be on something to do that.

                        Sure beats jumping off our garage roof with an umbrella as a kid. I can only imagine what the first person to try it and survive thought.

                          I think they may have mixed the RedBull with something!

                            Wow some great footage by some people who may be a bit craze. I've have jumped from a perfectly good helo and have packed a lot of parachutes when I was in the Navy. And yes all my work was guaranteed if the chute did not open just bring it back and I'll give you new one. Thanks for posting the great video 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...

                              You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
