    I wondered how that was constructed. Very useful hubby, Lou.

    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!

    I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

    The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

    Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
