Right on! That was very simple and nearly painless, the dancing part …not so much. :-)

Thanks for sharing. – Len

Thanks guys. I have been busy with other things lately, but i’ve got 5 videos i’ve filmed (and currently are editing) and 2 more that will be filmed. This dado video i decided to do cause i am building two huge wardrobe cabinets and it worked so well, that i thought i would set the cmaeras up and film before i did the last one.

Eddie, that beer diet is one that Safety Dan uses. BUt i can’t say it really works, but he thinks the more he’s on it, the better he looks to himself:-) And i’ve tried the Kreg diet, but i can’t get past the screws, yuck!
