hello fellow jocks and jocketts…this is my cherry wood gloat for the year, and probably the only one i will have, i was fortunate enough to have a man advertise that he wanted someone to cut his cherry tree down and use it for furniture and the likes…i was the first to call , i went and checked it out and was like the kid at Christmas, i knew what the present was, i just didn’t know exactly what is was going to look like, the day i cut it it went to the sawyer and now about ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #72: Harbor Freight 4'x8' Folding Utility Trailer - One Year Anniversary Update
