It's all a balancing act - whether is it a ball on a seal's nose, a man on a tightrope, the magic balancing belt, or … well, what can you come up with?

I'm with Nighthawk, I have a hard time balancing my checkbook, too. I also have a hard time balancing my attendance at work, hiding from the boss at work, goofing off at work so I don't get caught, and actually doing my job at work once in a while. This balancing act never ends.

Just a clarification… can it be 1 board foot (e.g. 6×24x1) because 12" wide boards tend to be spendy; or if not can we glue up a couple boards to make it 12" wide? Thanks.

Oh, I guess the long list of Popular Tags are NOT "Entries"?

I think I looked at it the wrong way…
Sorry…
