  • The Promised Land ?

    Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel , "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."

    Some time later, both our religious and political leaders said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this--- is--- the Promised Land."

    Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, done what they could to make it illegal to publicly pray, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and rewarded those who got us to mortgage the Promised Land and then stole the money!

    I was so depressed last night thinking about the inability of our political leaders to work together on a Health Care Plan for all Americans, the economy, the wars that are now "preemptive wars," lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc ......... I called a Suicide Hotline.

    I had to press 1 for English. I was connected to a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal. They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck......

    Folks, we're screwed!

          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...
