ok…i just spent an HOUR to open up the box and sort through all the wood…it truly is an amazing feeeling to see all these beautiful woods…I took a bunch of pictures…but its a bit early to turn on my table saw and cut the redwood…(i live really close to my neighbors in a one car open garage…well i work with my garage door open)...

But I will be out there within the hour!!! And I will try to get the box out today…a 48 hour turn around??? If I run into trouble I will get it out monday after school…at the latest—-so still a 4 day turn around in the worst case scenario…

I made three pens LAST weekend to be ready…but I did not put them togetheer…and I may want to make one or two more…since I want my best to show…

Ok…even though I am not ready to post picts…i wanted to come one and show my excitement…

LOL Matt! All those blanks… and kits… and pens can get exciting. =]

Looking forward to the pics and no need to rush to push it out today, I think Monday would be great.

I asked about getting in on this quite a while ago, but never got a response… who do I need to talk to to get in on it the next time around?

Great stuff Matt, thanks!

You better keep that cake away from the box, with that many candles it would take no time to get it blazing! Heck, who am I to talk – my next one will be 39 as well. =]
