It sounds like a good time to build that thingy my wife has been pestering me for. I look forward to making some sawdust and seeing the other entries.

WOW!!! This sounds Really Cool Martin!

Now I gotta see if I can find that thingamajig that I use to use to pulverize the uhmmm know that white stuff that looks like a dried grape except it’s white and bigger. You put it in an Italian Dish …uuhhhmm Ragatoonie, I think.

Hard Dish to make! Book says it has to be All Dented or something like that. Has to stick to the Icebox Door when you throw it from across the room. I had to peel 126 pieces off the Ceilig last time I tried that. Then everything was Cold so we ordered Pizza! YUMMY!!!

Oh Wait! I think I’m remembering…

Hi Martin.

Sadly, my shop time is tied up in the sawdust chronicles build challenge. I’d love to take part, and the wife has been bugging me for a knife block for our collection of Heinkles knives…

I want to thank you for the wonderful site you provide for us. I’ve only been here a short time, but it feels like home. Keep up the great work.
