        Hi Everyone, Thanks for the kind words. Yes I made my own frames from 3/4" redoak with Minwax redoak stain. The portraits are 1/2" maple and have a painted 3/16" plywood backer. The barrel racer is a little bit intricate but it really pops in the maple with the darker frame. Steve

            Hi Evie, funny you should say that about the natural light, I wanted to change it to a bottle of Bud Select but they wanted me to stick with the pattern. Steve

                Hi Sharon, good to hear from you. I am still catching up with christmas orders, my elves just aren't working very well I think they must be forming a union. (haha). I have one more portrait to do and a few small things that are ordered. I try to have a variety of things on hand for the last minute gifts. I will be waiting on those pictures of your stuff to get posted. Love Ya, Steve

                  Nice work, Steve. I particularly like the barrel racer too .. though maybe it should have been a water barrel ... oh wait a minute .. it's Coors .. that's pretty close ...

                      I can't even imagine what Coors LITE would taste like if anything ..

                      Must admit during visits to the States I was pleasantly surprised that there are good beers brewed there .. just not by the big name breweries like Bud, Coors and Miller that to me at least all taste of ... well .. not much ..

                      There are some great small craft breweries in the NW and I was pleasantly surprised when I was in Utah to find that although the alcohol content of beer there is restricted to around 3% they actually produce beers that taste good..

                        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...
