Karson you were right about the wood shop, great deal, lots of exotic lumber and veneer and lots of other goodies, but what can you do with the wife along. I did get some figure 8 fixtures for hanging pictures or mounting two pieces of wood together. A lock set for a armou’re and 1/2 in straight bit with the bearing guides on the bottom. Man I wanted to buy some wood soooo bad, just did’nt have a way to carry it home. Should have gotten some veneer but they have some back home that aint bad at the woodcraft store in Charlotte, MI. Wish I had the time to run up and see Mark D. He’s not far from me here. Probably a 3 hr drive. I was right though the drive just about did me in just gettin down here. When I get home I’ll pass some pics of the arch (I know most have seen it before) on so others can see it. We ate at the top of the hotel. It rotates as you eats, ever so slowly, I did’nt mind but, the wifey did, sea sickness I guess. Anyway we only had to pay for one meal. See yeall soon,

Mike if you drove to St. Louis. You should have bought a “Lumber / Luggage” rack to bring all of the wood and fixtures back home.

I’m glad you enjoyed it and glad to be of some help. I remember a hotel that has a revolving restaurant. I wonder if its the same just renamed. Down toward the waterfront?

Hi Mike;

Sorry to hear about the wifes dinner experience!

Other than that sounds like a fun time.
