    Just looking at it is enough to make my veins pop. Very nice work.

        Looks great! Try photoing it on a black background, it will make the veining stand out even better i think. Dale

          Nice Job Daryl.

          What kind of birds are they?

              Daryl,

              Take a piece of the same wood and do lots of veining on it, then stain and paint it before you do your beautiful bird. It looks great the way it is.

              I find that the veining gets lost in dark wood

                Bill,

                Yes we have Cardinals, even had some feed in my backyard last year. Didn't see them this year, only a bunch of Blue Jays coming on the railing and yelling at us if there are no peanuts for them, sharing with the Grey squirrels (a couple of which are now pregnant). These last few weeks, the Common Grackles have started to eat the peanuts too; but their approach is so hypocrite it's a turn off, they also are loud and their yellow eyes make them look kinda evil

                I live in an urban setting, on the South Shore of the St-Lawrence from Montreal.

                In our backyard, so far we have seen feeding:
                Norther Flicker
                Blue Jay
                American Robin
                White-crowned Sparrow
                Dark-eyed Junco
                Northern Cardinal
                Red-winged Blackbird
                Common Grackle
                House Finch
                American Goldfinch
                House Sparrow
                Morning Dove
                Rock Pigeon
                European Starling

                Just was looking for ducks I guess
                To tell the truth, I just didn't look close enough and mistook the tail feather for a branch, so it looked like a bird with no tail feathers which looked really weird to me.

                (Note to myself: Drink coffee first, post second.)

                      Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                      Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                      Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                      Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                      I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                      Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
