Thanks everyone- I will check things out and get used to format. Once I get my feet wet I will post some pictures. I am a retired plaster contractor and build boxes and furniture to keep myself busy.

Thanks again all. Looked at your projects- some very nice boxes, turnings and furniture. I posted some pictures but I guess they have to be approved. Once they do I will post some more pieces. Again many thanks for the hardy welcome. Mike
