    Haven't been posting for a while but been skulking around in the background watching posts and projects. Still a super site!!!! Maybe start posting again this summer when I hope to get back into the shop and make some sawdust.

    Thought I'd add... I had to sell Ethel because I just couldn't drive it around anymore. I really didn't 'have' to sell her, I just couldn't stand seeing it sit in the garage and gather dust when I knew someone else could drive and enjoy it. I miss it every time I go out in the garage but have gotten a new project because my dear wife knew I needed something to keep me busy. It's a 1976 MGB roadster. NOW THAT's A SITE watching me get in and out of it. It is quite a bit easier to get into and drive than the 29 was though. It allows my legs to extend out straighter and my back is a lot more comfortable in the seats than the hard seat that was in Ethel. It still doesn't get taken out much though. Just something to work on when i feel like getting greasy.

          I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

          If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

          The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

          I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
