My inlaws-to-be are in town & one showed interest in the shop. She made some shavings and I think she’s hooked! Look for a new lumberjock soon.

WOO-HOO !!!

By the way … you may have fooled them, and maybe even a few others, but … I know and you know that “getting them interested” pretty much translates into “getting some free work out of them.”

And bless your heart for making THAT work :-)

Thanks jocks! It’s really fun to share this stuff with someone else. Your fiance’ can only watch you plane so many times before she finds something better to do. :)
