    Floyd -- Does look like a nice project. Howsomeever, I have far too many projects. Personally I have a big problem getting tempted by old mechanical things that need restored. So I'm glad that it is ~3000 miles away.

      My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

They will be quarantining them in...
