This all started back last month when I ran across some old .44 magnum cartridge cases and thought of my LJ friend, Jim Jakosh. I decided to surprise him by polishing and sending them to him without any warning.
Well, Jim being Jim got in the last surprise. On July 25, 2013, a package arrived unannounced at my office and upon opening it I found Jim’s “Corian Cutting Board . . .” that he has posted as a project on July 22, 2013 using some those .44 Magnum cartridge cases (c.f., http://lumberjocks.com/projects/87325 ).
This was a very touching gift from a great LJ and I truly appreciate his thoughtfulness. Also, I apologize in my being remiss in not posting this thank you earlier, but life happens and things just got delayed. Thanks, Jim!!!!!!
Oh, and when I took it home to show my wife, her comment was to inquire whether Jim really meant it just for me? You guessed: it’s in her kitchen, but I do get to look at it. Beautiful work.
