  • Costa Rica vacation - Pura Vida! - and a Happy New Year to all

    Norma, Kev and I just got home from my eye surgery recuperation vacation in Costa Rica. 11 days of Pura Vida!

    I took an obligatory one day of rest before we set out on a tour of a number of Costa Rica's magnificent national parks.

    Kev and I shot loads of photos with some interesting topics to share later with all but for the moment I'll just share one photo to remind all of an intarsia challenge project started off by Janette Square what seems like ages ago and take the opportunity to wish all forum members the very best of good health, sufficient wealth and peace and love in abundance for 2019.

          Glad that the recuperation trip worked out, Jim. Hope it heralds a year of triumph over adversity and more good adventures yet to come!

          And very best wishes to all my forum friends for a happy, peaceful, and healthful new year, filled with love and sawdust!

            What a photo! Hard to believe that it is a real animal.

                Great photo! Couldn't make something up that was that colorful and have anyone believe it.

                Happy New Year to everyone and may we all be around for the next one.

                      Quartz you are absolutely right about the need for a good blade and proper tuning of the saw. I thought the price was a lot cheaper than I expected. Only nine ornaments

                      Thanks Rolf. Hard to see, but the light wood is curly maple. Beautiful
