Hi Phil,

Well, after burning myself out on boxes, but still wanting to do some woodworking, I started on the Manzanita piece that you sent to me (thank you again!)

It started out very poorly (at least from my point of view) but now I have it to a point that I know it will be okay, if not outstanding.

See what you think so far… (much more to go, but wanted you to know sending it was not a wasted effort or expense!)

Have your say...
