I Just received my plaques this week and I thought I would share them with all of you.

Again I want to thank Martin and all of my fellow woodworkers.

I’m in middle of now “tropical storm” Ike and wanted to get this posted before I lost power.
The “eye” is about 20 miles south of me as I type.

A quick update: The storm was no problem at all. All is good here.

I pray that you and your family remain safe. I love your work and I am always impressed when you post something new. You deserve the awards. Are you considering some youtube how-to videos?

Well, all is well here. Ike was a dud in my area. Just some rain and a little wind.

No where near as bad as the Santa Ana winds I grew up with in Southern California.

Thanks for all your well wishes.
