  • Photos of Bird Ornament Tree (as requested)

    I was asked to post more detailed pics of my bird ornament tree (which my wonderful hub built for me), so here they are. It's great because it doesn't take up much table space but holds a lot of product. Its biggest drawback is transporting it. I usually carry it on my lap and ask Hub to please drive carefully! We can fit our entire display now in our VW Golf, which is just wonderful. No more taking both the truck and the car.

    The base of the tree is 12 inches in diameter and Hub used one of the big round Lazy Susans, which are surprisingly inexpensive. I think it was 10 bucks. The vertical portion is not solid wood but made from 1x4s (it's hollow). A cap was made for the top which has a hole in it where I insert the "thingy" that holds the laminated sign, which is just a hunk of wood with a bandsaw kerf. The 1/4" dowels that hold the birds are capped to keep them from falling off. The little bird cards are laminated and stick on with little Velcro squares. I give a card (non-laminated) to the customer with each bird they purchase, which they seem to much appreciate. Nice touch for gift giving.

    I think The Good Lord every day for my Hub. He doesn't make intarsia and he doesn't cook but he certainly has his uses!

        Glad things worked out.

        I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

        Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

        So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
