The frames are very racy Roger. I like them. Now the woodworker kicks in, did you buy or make that clamping frame?

thnx everyone. appreciate it. @Lew & superd: I kept looking at the one out of Rockler or Lee Valley, I forget, but, I wound up makin mine outta my head with scraps. I really need to re-make it a lil better, but, it does work rather well. there is no finish on it, so I put a small piece o wax paper at the glue joints, so it doesn’t get glued to the jig..:)

Sorry Roger, before I saw your message, we ate ‘em all…..(-:

Actually we didn’t. They make a good lunch cut up for sandwich, to throw in with some other stuff, or as they are….........(-:
